LeCounte is viewed as one of the most important commitments Smart has secured in his brief time as head coach. The junior has been very vocal about getting the top player in state to play for the Bulldogs.
“We need to get everyone to stay in the state,” LeCounte has said in the past. “Some of the guys I want to bring in with me are Malik Herring, William Poole, Jamyest Williams and Deangelo Gibbs. We are trying to get everybody. You had guys like Robert Nkemdiche, DeShaun Watson and Raekwon McMillan that all left the state, and that’s not going to happen anymore.”
