Immanuel Quickley recently cut his list to four schools: UK, Kansas, Maryland and Miami, and is expected to make a decision before the start of his senior year.

Quickley is currently ranked as the No. 2 point guard and the 10th overall in the 2018 class.

Evan Daniels told the Herald-Leader that there’s a clear leader for his commitment.

“I think Kentucky is definitely the team to beat for Immanuel Quickley.”

Here’s what he had to say about all four schools:

What sticks out about each of the finalists?

Kentucky: “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.”

Kansas: “Coach Bill Self is great on and off the floor. I really liked the feel of Allen Fieldhiuse when I visited. The feel there was cool to see.”

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

Miami: “I think we really connected with Miami when they came and visited. 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.”

“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.”

John Calipari will also have the chance to leave an impact on four high schoolers with UK offers: Bol Bol, Romeo Langford, Immanuel Quickley and Cameron Reddish who all have became top targets for the Kentucky Wildcats’ 2018 class.
