UK coaches John Calipari and Kenny Payne are expected to visit five-star guard Jalen Lecque in North Carolina on Wednesday, according to national recruiting analyst Andrew Slater.
Lecque — a 6-foot-4 prospect at Christ School (N.C.) — is currently the No. 12 overall prospect in the 2019 class, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He was originally in the 2018 class before moving back a grade to 2019, though he has publicly acknowledged in recent weeks that he’s considering reclassifying back to 2018, which would allow him to play college basketball next season.
Kentucky has only three signees so far for the 2018 class, and the Cats could have a spot for Lecque in that group.
