Lecque Declares for NBA Draft

Brewster Academy guard Jalen Lecque officially declared for the NBA Draft on Saturday, confirming an ESPN report from two weeks ago. 

Lecque is a New York native who spent his fourth year of high school at Christ School in North Carolina last year before using his fifth year of eligibility at Brewster this season. 

He led the Bobcats to a historic fifth National Prep Championship and was named the tournament's MVP after helping the team to win four games in just two days. 

Lecque signed a National Letter of Intent with North Carolina State in November and still could potentially opt to join the Wolfpack next season after getting feedback from NBA executives. 

He finished as the 39th ranked player in the ESPN 100, which takes into account both a prospect's immediate projected impact at the college level as well as their NBA upside, and the 75th ranked prospect in the ESPN Big Board, which projects a prospect's stock for the upcoming NBA Draft.
