You know what Kentucky needs? Another 2019 guard that could reclassify. According to Andrew Slater, John Calipari and Kentucky have extended a scholarship offer to 2019 combo guard Jalen Lecque, who is considering making the jump to the 2018 class.
The five-star Lecque is one of the top guards in 2019 along with Ashton Hagans and Tyrese Maxey. Hagans is the only UK commit so far, but Maxey is expected to join him in that pledge this week. All three guards are considering reclassifying, with Lecque telling USA Today’s Jason Jordan he’s 50/50 on making the move.
“I want to go into a situation where I’ll be playing a lot as a freshman because I want to potentially be a one-and-done,” Lecque told USA Today. “If I don’t have that situation, I have no problem staying in my class.”
If Lecque is interested in Kentucky, that means he’s likely staying put in 2019; however, with Calipari collecting guards like Thanos did infinity stones, you never know.
