In case you were unaware, De'Aaron Fox is REALLY fast.
The five-star Kentucky Wildcats signee is ranked as the sixth-best prospect in the 2016 class, but when it comes to speed, he's probably one of, if not the fastest this class has to offer.
We got a peek at that this past week at the Chris Paul Elite Guard Camp in Winston-Salem (NC), where Fox showed off that speed by blowing past Ohio State point guard Jaquan Lyle on a post route.

Fox looks like he would have been an NFL burner had he gone that route. Even though this is a football field and not the hardwood, that's still some impressive speed Fox is showing off.
Then again, if you've watched any of Fox's high school highlights, there are plenty of highlights showing off his amazing speed, both on the offensive and defensive end. There's a reason Fox has drawn comparisons to former UK great and Wizards All-Star John Wall.
Fox possesses the kind of quickness and speed that's made Wall one of the best basketball players in the world.
Mr. De'Aaron Fox can play a little defense as well. #BBN https://t.co/RY129BCppl— Scott Charlton (@Scott_Charlton) May 25, 2016
