Bel Air (MD) John Carroll School 2018 five-star point guard Immanuel Quickley has four final schools he will work with going forward: Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland and Miami (Fl).

“I think those four schools fit me the most as a person and as a player,” Quickley explained to Scout’s Evan Daniels. “I think off and on the court those schools fit me the best.”

Quickley removed Virginia, Duke and Providence from his previous list of seven schools. He took Washington out of consideration back in early March of 2017.

Quickley doesn’t plan on wasting time when it comes to visits and an eventual decision.

“I’m planning to take all of my official visits,” Quickley said. “Once I plan them, I’ll take them and make a decision before I start my senior year.”

As part of Team BBC on the adidas Gauntlet circuit, Quickley is averaging 14.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 28.9 minutes.

Kentucky has long been the favorite to land the multi-talented point guard out of Baltimore.

“Coach [John] Calipari, what he’s done with men like me. Getting freshman PG’s, developing them and getting them to the NBA is what I like about Kentucky,” Quickley stated.

Miami and head coach Jim Larrañaga has built a good relationship with Quickley.

“I think we really connected with Miami when they came and visited,” Quickley explained. “All four coaches, in a good and positive way. Coach [Jim] Larrañaga is a great guy and I respect him on and off the floor. He’s great guy.”

For Kansas, Quickley said he really like the feel of Allen Fieldhouse during his visit last October.

“Coach Bill Self is great on and off the floor,” he said. “I really liked the feel of Allen Fieldhouse when I visited. The feel there was cool to see.”

For Maryland, it’s the appeal of his hometown school.

“That’s my hometown,” said Quickley. “I think hometown always has an advantage. What coach [Mark] Turgeon has done the past two or three years is special.”

Quickley is the number six overall player in the 247Sports 2018 Composite Player Rankings. He is the number two point guard in the class and the number one prospect in his home state of Maryland.
