Video highlights of Kansas basketball recruit Marcus Garrett in marquee matchups

Dallas Skyline point guard Marcus Garrett, who on Monday made a verbal commitment to attend Kansas, wears No. 6 for the red team in the first video below.

Garrett, a 6-foot-5, 180-pound point guard who has the size to play the other two perimeter positions as well, is shown in the video below playing against Texas A&M three-star recruit T.J. Starks, a 6-foot pure point guard who led Dallas Lancaster to the state title last season. Rivals does not include Starks in its top 150 for the Class of 2017.

In the next video, Garrett is wearing No. 23 in blue and Irving MacArthur point guard Andrew Jones wears No. 10 in white. Jones, a 6-foot-4, 180-pound, five-star shooting guard, committed to Texas to play for Shaka Smart. Rivals ranks him No. 22 in the Class of 2017.

It won't take long for the Kansas coaching staff to turn Garrett into a much more intense defender. Other coaches will have a tougher time trying to figure out how to defend a long guard with a quick first step and a touch so soft the net barely moves.

Wow. That's some HORRIBLE defense.

Hope his broken ankles have healed! LOL @ 2:59 in that first video.

It's #3 that got his ankles broke at 2:59, not our guy, #6.

I watched all of each clip. He needs to work on his defense if he plans to play for Bill Self.
