Not sure if this actually is echeveria, I’m pretty new to...

It's etiolated, or stretching for light. Echeveria and most other succulents need lots of direct sunlight to remain compact. You can behead it and prop the cutting to restore the compact look. Gradually increase it's exposure to sunlight over a couple of weeks; you should start to see really pretty colors from the light.
I think you are correct that it is an echeveria. My guess is it may be β€˜Encantada’. Also, it looks like it may be stressed (that elongated growth and downward turned lower leaves). It could be a single or combination of the usual suspects: watering (under), light (more), or temp (drafty or cold area). Hope this helps, or gives you enough info to further investigate. πŸ˜€
