Player: Craig Lecesne
School: St. James (Md.)
Lecesne, who came to the States from Sweden a year ago, is an interesting prospect. Will his name be on any top lists? Not likely. He'll have a lot of mid-major offers, and some high major nibbles, and yes, Maryland is very aware of him and his skills. He could go to a lower level D-I program and be a star. It's a bit of a reach for me to include him as a bonafide high major player, but still, we like his potential.
First of all, Lecesne is a legit 6-7, possibly taller, and likely to grow more. He runs the court well, has an adequate handle, knows how to play (after the last couple years around here, knowledge of the game is a crucial element in all my evaluations), and simply scores the basketball, both around the hoop, and out to the arc.
He's not a flashy player, but a subtle one, the type who will post big numbers without the average fan even noticing. Now, Lecesne will have to get much stronger, and with that, hopefully the aggression will follow, as he's not prone to mixing it up on the boards just yet. He's probably more of a "system" player, but again, much like Corey Manigault (Paul VI/Fairfax, Va.), we think Lecesne is worth monitoring. He's got lots of potential as his body matures. He's a very intriguing player, who will have plenty of collegiate interest, especially from strong academic schools.
