Five-star guard Jalen Lecque cut his list to seven and it didn’t include Kentucky. The Cats haven’t been recruiting Lecque this summer so it doesn’t come as a surprise, but the No. 18 player in the class of 2019 does have an intriguing list.
It’s lacking bluebloods.
The 6-foot-4, 180-pound athletic combo guard is down to Louisville, Texas Tech, TCU, NC State, Oregon, UCLA and Tennessee. Solid programs across the board, and UofL is right there, but for such a talented player it’s strange to see Kentucky, Duke, UNC, Kansas all excluded.
I have no idea what to make of Lecque’s list, but there are a couple schools that will play UK next season, so there’s a possibility Lecque will travel to Rupp Arena.
It’s becoming clear UK’s mainly interested in Cole Anthony, Bryan Antoine and Scottie Lewis as guards in the class of 2019. The Cats already have five-star Texan Tyrese Maxey committed.
I would like to thank all the schools that have recruited me through my basketball career. It was a hard decision on narrowing down my list in colleges to choose from, but these are the schools I have chosen for my top 7???? @TiptonEdits pic.twitter.com/uW0QKoJ5Rj
