Marquis Teague: terrific speed, athleticism

Daniels says he does not have John Wall-like speed, but he's plenty fast to run a big-time team.

"He is such an intriguing prospect. In the high school season, he is very good but is not what you think he would be and they did not win a lot of games. People in Indiana really do not think as highly of him as people around the national scene.

He probably won't win Mr. Basketball," Daniels said. "But when he gets in the AAU or camp setting, he is tremendous. He has terrific speed, tremendous athelticism. He is not a great shooter, but is a really good passer who can get to the lane. He's the type of point guard John Calipari loves to have because he can facilitate in the dribble-drive offense."

Daniels says he does not have John Wall-like speed, but he's plenty fast to run a big-time team.

"I don't think anybody has the speed of Wall, but he is not below speed. He is very fast," Daniels said. "He has the potential to be a very good defender. He has a strong, but wiry frame. He goes side to side very well. He will be a big, strong kid on the college level. I think he wil have that type leadership at Kentucky and be a really good player."
