According to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports
, Leveque has a chance to earn a chunk of the frontcourt minutes left behind by the departure of Chris Silva.
South Carolina doesn't exactly have a stable of top-100 recruits entering this season, but at least on paper, Leveque is the highest-rated of the class. Furthermore, he fills an area of immediate need, as the Gamecocks are losing 15.2 points and 7.6 rebounds after the graduation of center Chris Silva. Fellow 6-11 forward Malik Kotsar expects to fill a good portion of that void, but the team doesn't have much depth at the position. In steps Leveque, who will enter as an above-average rebounder and shot-blocker with a developing offensive game. While he doesn't necessarily project as a starter just yet, that could change based on the level of energy he's expected to provide off the bench, as well Kotsar's propensity to find himself in foul trouble. Leveque should at least be on the radar in SEC-only formats, with some sneaky dynasty potential as well.
