UK assistant coach Joel Justus is expected to be in North Carolina on Wednesday for a visit with Jalen Lecque, one of the top prospects in the class of 2019.
Lecque — a 6-foot-4 point guard — is the No. 9 overall prospect in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. UK’s latest visit was first reported by recruiting analyst Justin Byerly, and the Cats have been monitoring his recruitment for a few months now.
Originally part of the 2018 class, there’s still a chance that Lecque could rejoin that group and play college basketball next season.
UK will also check out Lecque’s teammate, class of 2020 power forward Justice Ajogbor, on Wednesday.
