Five-Star 2018 Point Guard Immanuel Quickley Cuts to Three

Immanuel Quickley, the 6-foot-3 point guard from John Carroll (MD) School, has cut his list to Kansas, Miami and Kentucky, he announced on CSN Mid-Atlantic. Quickley removed Maryland from his list. The five-star point guard will officially visit Kansas on Sept. 2, Miami on Sept. 9 and Kentucky on Sept. 16.

Quickley said a lack of communication was why he cut Maryland.

“I am taking Maryland off my list,” Quickley told CSN Mid-Atlantic. “They [Maryland] haven’t contacted me as much. So it only makes sense to go forward with those three.”

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

“Coach [JohnCalipari, 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 told Evan Daniels of Scout.

Quickley played for Kentucky coach John Calipari with the USA Basketball U-19 team that won the Bronze medal in the FIBA World Cup. Quickley averaged 6.7 points and 2.4 assists in 17 minutes of action per game.

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.”

As part of Team BBC on the adidas Gauntlet circuit, Quickley averaged 16.0 points, 5.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 28.1 minutes per outing.

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.
