Desert Vista High School is coming off winning this year's 6A State Championship, with their best performance of the season coming in the state's 6A Final - a 75-55 championship win over Mountain Pointe High School. In the championship victory, 6-foot, 165-pound rising junior guard Dasean Lecque went off, as he did all season long for his team. Since the end to the season, the New Jersey-native has not slowed down a bit, as he has torched his competition in the Pangos Best of Arizona League - earning numerous scholarship offers to his credit, as a result.
While Lecque did not have any scholarship offers for himself at the end of the high school season or during the spring, he has recently picked up numerous scholarship offers for himself, as now is picking up serious recruiting steam.
Recently, Lecque picked up offers from Boston College, Loyola Marymount, Hofstra, Morgan State and Southern Utah, and this is just over the past month, while Lecque has played exceptionally well in the Pangos Best of Arizona League. College coaches have finally caught a glimpse of Lecque in action in the league through observing BallerTV.com.
Lecque is the younger brother of current NBA guard Jalen Lecque (Phoenix Suns), who made the jump directly to the NBA from Brewster Academy in New Hampshire. He comes from a strong line of ball players in a family where both parents highly understand the game of basketball, and also the process it takes to be highly successful at the craft. His older brother committed himself fully to the game, and was able to leave high school for the pros. This younger Lecque has a very similar mindset, as he plays much older than his years suggest and he also has his eyes on the highest level of the game.
Lecque is a pure point guard prospect with an advanced ability to handle the basketball and run a team, especially for a player his age. He has command presence on the basketball court, which shows that he plays with superior confidence on the floor and knows he belongs on the floor, regardless of the competition. He is a unique find for a point guard prospect, as he has excellent toughness and loves to compete against anyone.
Last week in the Pangos League, Lecque actually guarded top-rated 2021 Hillcrest Prep prospect Maxwell Lewis in his league game, and never backed down. He actually went right at Lewis, even though he was giving up almost 8-inches to his opponent.
Lecque is currently the top-rated guard prospect in Arizona's 2022 Class, and was scheduled to have a big summer - teaming up with Dylan Anderson and other top-rated prospects on the Arizona Supreme 16U squad. It is still unclear as to whether he will get his chance to compete alongside Anderson this summer, while the NCAA considers an Evaluation Period in late August or early September. Either way, it looks as though Lecque will see his college recruitment begin to soar, as numerous college programs are already taking serious notice.
I will continue to follow the recruitment of Lecque closely this summer, and bring you updates as they continue to develop.
Arizona Hoop Review Scouting Report: Lecque is a pure point guard prospect with an advanced ability to handle the basketball and run a team, especially for a player his age. He has command presence on the basketball court, which shows that he plays with superior confidence on the floor and knows he belongs on the floor, regardless of the competition. He is a floor general with the basketball in his hands, and enjoys making plays for others, but is also very skilled in his ability to create for himself as well. He is a good shooter of the basketball with range, and a nice mid-range game as well, which allows him to get to anywhere he wants to on the floor. He has a strong ability to get into the lane and finish, and also is very effective in transition and in the open floor, where he thrives. Lecque is also an excellent defender that has quick hands and feet and plays passing lanes, which will suit him nicely as a player over time. Lecque is a ball hawk, and enjoys playing the game at a high level. His superior level of confidence that he plays and his mental toughness that he has allows him to play both ends of the floor at a high level. An excellent point guard prospect with serious potential for the future.
