College: Kansas State
Classification: Fifth-Year Senior
Projected Draft Range: Likely Undrafted
Decent scorer off the dribble
Adequate defender that can get steals
Struggles to guard taller players
Only an average athlete
Very undersized for his position
Old for a draft prospect, may have limited upside
Markquis Nowell is a skilled point guard that had a solid season at Kansas State this year. He can score and pass the basketball, but can be too streaky with his jump shot at times, and he will need to show NBA scouts and teams that he can defend taller players on a consistent basis. Currently, he may be a long shot to be drafted, but he could project into a backup point guard role for the NBA.
