Five-star guard Immanuel Quickley may just be a junior, but he’s already ready to narrow down his list of schools.
“I’m going to cut my list down to eight,” Quickley told Scout.
Quickley’s list of eight consists of Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Miami (Fl), Providence, Virginia and Washington. Quickley holds scholarship offers from all of the schools, except for Duke and Kansas.
“Basketball season is here now along with academics picking up,” Quickley said when asked why he wanted to cut this list. “I just want to get it out of the way a little bit. I think that’s the next step in making my decision.”
The Bel Air (Md.) John Carroll standout has taken unofficial visits to all of the schools on his list, except Miami and Providence. His most recent unofficial visit was to Washington the weekend of November 20th.
“It was fun,” he said of the trip. “I got to go to the football game. I got a chance to talk to Markelle [Fultz] and the coaching staff, so it was cool.”
Quickley took a number of other visits during the month of October. He went to Duke on the 28th, Virginia on the 22nd, Kentucky on the 14th, Miami on the 8th and 9th and Kansas the weekend of the 1st.
But just because Quickley has cut his list and has already taken visits to majority of the schools involved, he’s not looking to make a decision in the near future.
“I don’t think I’ll make a decision in the next couple of months,” he said. “I definitely want to visit each one, one more time. I just want to develop my relationships with all those schools and then I’ll make my decision.”
Quickley is regarded as the No. 2 point guard and the No. 10 overall prospect in the 2018 recruiting class.
This past summer, Quickley was a member of the USA Basketball u17 team that won a Gold Medal at the FIBA u17 World Championship.
