Zag’s blog has a post up today confirming that Marquis Teague will go forward with plans for an August visit to UK. Our good buddy Dustin is on the road, but just spoke with his dad and asked me to post this for him. Enjoy:
Right off the bat, his dad told Dustin that “Marquis likes UK a lot. We just need to go there and sit with the coaches and do those kinda things to get a gauge of where we’re at”, saying that they are definitely in the top of his potential schools. When asked if that meant in the “top 5” or “top 3”, Teague’s father said he had “no problem putting them in the top 5”. He then reiterated the strong interest Marquis has in UK and said that he just needs to sit down with the coaches.
Also, Sir Rumbaugh asked if there was a chance that during a visit, not specifically his UK visit, that Marquis would commit to a school. His father replied definitively by saying “No, definitely not. We like to separate ourselves from the coaches and university and sit down as a family and see where we’re at.”
As far as when the visit will come, he is not sure of, they are in Dallas for Adidas Nations right now. When asked if they were going to try to get it in before school starts, Dustin was told that Teague’s classes started Tuesday, so it will be a weekend visit after the school year starts.
So, there you go. Another top point guard – and one who was widely believed to be a Filthy Card for a long time – taking a look at UK. That’s not a bad thing.
