ESPN No. 12 ranked high school senior and Kentucky commit Immanuel Quickley is excited about joining the Wildcats next season.

 

“I’ve gotta say how excited I am to be a part of the Kentucky family,” Quickley told USA Today. “The biggest thing that went into my decision was seeing the players at my position that went before me and knowing that if I go there and listen to Coach (John) Calipari I can achieve my dreams.”

 

And as the school’s first commit in the 2018 class, Quickley is eager to see which other top recruits will be joining him in Lexington.

 

“As a point guard, I know that the more talent I have around me the easier the game is so I want everybody; (No. 2) Zion (Williamson), (No. 4) Bol Bol, (No. 7) Keldon (Johnson), (No. 1) R.J. (Barrett), (No. 24) Shareef (O’Neal)…,” said Quickley. “I’m closer with Zion so I’m constantly working on him.”

 

“Kentucky is the perfect place for a player [like Williamson] that brings everything he brings to the table,” added Quickley.

 

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

 

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

 

He also had an outstanding summer, averaging a whopping 25.8 points and 4.7 rebounds for Team BBC at the Adidas Summer Championships

 

Scout.com’s Keith Cavanaugh loves Quickley’s game.

 

“Quickley has good size and very good length to see and pass over defenses,” wrote 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.”
