In the 2012 NBA draft the Chicago Bulls selected 19-year-old point guard Marquis Teague from the National Champion Kentucky Wildcats.

Prior to his freshman season at Kentucky, Teague was one of the most highly-regarded recruits coming out of high school and was ranked No. 8 in ESPN.com's 2011 rankings.
