Five-star Immanuel Quickley hasn’t made his commitment yet, but he has already announced a favorite school in his process.
Quickley told Scout.com that Kentucky is his leader at the moment. He is currently practicing for the USA U-19 trials, and Kentucky coach John Calipari is coaching the team.
“I think right now, Kentucky is definitely a favorite,” Quickley said. “They’re getting an advantage because I’m getting to know Coach Calipari pretty well right now, but I’m still a long way from reaching my decision. I still want to take all my visits and see every school before I make my decision.”
Quickley said it’s easy to see how Calipari has gotten so many point guards to the NBA throughout his career. Calipari told him that not every player has what it takes to play for the Wildcats, but he believes Quickley can be an impact player for Kentucky.
The 6’2, 175 pound prospect is from Bel Air, Maryland, and he has taken unofficial visits to Maryland, Kentucky and Kansas. Kentucky is the leader, but the Jayhawks and Terrapins could also pose a threat for Quickley. He also listed Miami in his top four schools.
Scout ranks Quickley as the No. 10 overall player in the Class of 2018, and he is one of the top point guards in the class.
Quickley doesn’t have official visits set up yet, but he plans to make his decision in the fall before his senior season starts.
