One of the top point guards in the junior class has already visited Kentucky and may visit again. KSR had an opportunity to talk with Teague about that visit and recruiting.

Already considered one of the best point guards in the nation, regardless of class, Marquis Teague appears to have made quite a bit of headway in his recruitment. But he's not quite ready to make a decision. "I'm not sure yet (when I'll make my decision)," said Teague. "I need to talk with my dad and we haven't talked about it yet," he finished.

Just about a month ago, the thought was that Teague had narrowed his list to Louisville, Indiana and Kentucky, but that's not the case. "I got Louisville, Indiana, Cincinnati, Ohio State and also Kentucky," he said.

With several of his schools close by, Teague has been able to take several unofficial visits and has more planned in the near future. "I've got a visit this weekend to Cincinnati. I'm going back to Louisville on October 2nd. I'm supposed to go back to Kentucky too, but I don't know when."

So how was that first visit to Lexington? "It was a good visit. I got to meet coach Cal and play with the team and meet a lot of the players and stuff. I had a chance to see the campus," he continued.

"The facilities were really nice. The schools was a nice place. Everything about the visit stood out," he said.

Teague's abilities on the court stand out as well. "I'm a leader on the court. I run the team well. I'm hitting the outside shot better. I'm also an athletic point guard," he said. "I want to get better with my pull up game. I want to be a more efficient point guard and be a better leader on the floor," he finished.

Coaches have noticed all these qualities and have made pitches to Teague to choose their school, but Teague has already mapped out his the qualities his choice must possess.

"A school that fits my style of play is important. It will be the place I'm most comfortable being at. I'm also looking for a good relationship with the coaches and good academics," he said.

Marquis Teague is the number one point guard in the 2011 class according to Scout.com.
