Jalen Lecque Cuts IU

Recommended Posts

I guess we can make room for more 5 stars.  Impressive collection of videos- he can jump out of the gym, but has a great all around game

Get em both in! Archie’s going hard for not only 5 star players but top 10 talent with OAD potential.

Looks like Archie prefers my style of stacking up top 10 players! You mad Scott 😜?

Anyone know the pronunciation of the Lecque? Is it French...or a one-time French name that has been Americanized into something totally different. See Dubois and Versailles.

I’m going to ask a dumb question.  With the possibility of this young man reclassifying could that, maybe, be a hint that IU isn’t getting Romeo?

 

That’s not dumb at all and very plausible but the way our insiders here seem to be posting about it seems like a severe long shot that Romeo doesn’t commit.

Only a slightly educated guess: one syllable, “LEHCK.”

Again, just a hunch.

Or it could be "LEAGUE"?

Could be, I guess.

The “cq” typically indicates a hard “c” sound or a “k” sound...

Can’t wait to get an indication from closer to the source.

Like when he commits. 😜

We've said we need another shooter. If this kid is considering moving up to 2018, I'm curious if that's what Archie is pushing for.

Thanks. This would make the most sense to me and my high school French (mostly fuzzy memories now) but was not sure at all.

Not much. I can make out a few things and have an understanding of some pronunciation, but not much more than that. It has been many moons ago.

That would be surprising.

Even a French pronunciation wouldn’t sound like that. It’s rare that when we Anglicize something we make it sound *more* exotic.

But again, who knows?

In his highlight video after baskets they announce it. Pretty sure it sounds like Le-Q, La-Q or Lec-Q.

I wonder how involved Al Durham and / or his father is in this recruitment?

What's the relationship there? I forgot -_-

Al Durhams father, Al Durham Sr, is the coach of Lecques AAU team. Has to help at least opening the door.
