ESPN No. 12 ranked high school junior Immanuel Quickley has picked his top three colleges.


They are: Kentucky, Kansas, and Miami.


Maryland had been in the mix, but didn’t make the final cut.


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


The early buzz is that Kentucky is a heavy favorite to land Quickley, helped by the fact that UK’s John Calipari was his USA U19 head coach this summer at Egypt’s World Cup.


“It was really cool, just get to know him on and off the floor,” said Quickley of coach Cal. “We got to spend time in Egypt touring and stuff like that, getting on camels and just really getting to know him off the court.”


But he also really likes Kansas and their track record in developing players for the pros.


“I think they’ve taken players, not even like myself, players that haven’t been as talented as me and gotten them to the highest level, so I think that’s been a big part of what’s stood out,” Quickley said about the Jayhawks.


The 6-3 point guard averaged 23.7 points and 7.2 assists this season for John Carroll (Bel Air, MD), leading the team to a 21-13 record.


The explosive Quickley poured in 30 or more points five times, scored 20-plus points in 14 games, and had eight double doubles this year.


Scout loves his game.


“Quickley has good size and very good length to see and pass over defenses,” wrote Scout’s Keith Cavanaugh. “He can shoot, score, lead the offense and fill the stat sheet. Defensively, he is very solid as Quickley is long-armed and anticipates well in passing lanes, gets his hands on balls, and has good timing.”
