Q/A with 2022 four-star Dasean Lecque
Tell me about where you grew up.
I grew up in a small town called Teaneck New Jersey, right across the bridge from Manhattan, everybody kind of knows everybody so that’s how small it is.
Was basketball always a priority in your household? Who put the ball in your hands?
Yes basketball was a priority since I was young, that’s all I knew and I’ve been playing basketball since I can remember
When did you start taking the sport seriously?
I started taking basketball seriously about 7th grade, I saw my brother starting to get really good and I just wanted to be able to be better then him.
Describe your game in a sentence or two.
I like to describe my game as a pass first point guard who can score on all 3 levels.
What does the game of basketball mean to you? In other words, why does it mean so much to you?
Basketball means a lot to me mainly because I grew up with a ball in my hand. And like a family member when you grow up with someone, you start to build a love for them and I can say the same thing with basketball.
How do you feel about your current ranking?
I’m not happy with my current ranking, and I feel like I am at least top 50, but at the same time the class of 2022 is loaded so it’s fun competing against top guys who are “five stars”.
Tell me your general thoughts on rankings. Do they matter? If so, how much do they matter in the whole scheme of things?
I feel like every player cares about rankings, but at the same time those rankings don’t save you in the game, so it’s just about competing.
Do you have a current list of schools you’re focused on?
I don’t have a personal list of schools I’m focused on but I’m considering the 6 schools that offered me: Arizona State, Hofstra, LMU, Morgan State, Boston College, Southern Utah.
What schools reach out to you the most?
