Five-star point guard Immanuel Quickley picks Kentucky over Kansas, Miami
Quickley played for John Calipari this summer with USA Basketball
He's No. 8 in 247Sports' Class of 2018 Composite Rankings -- and the first 2018 prospect to commit to the Wildcats. The 6-foot-3 point guard averaged 23.7 points and 7.2 assists last season at The John Carroll School in Maryland. He spent the summer playing for the United States' FIBA U-19 World Cup team that Calipari coached to a silver medal in Egypt.
Quickley's announcement means there are now three top-10 Class of 2018 prospects committed to schools. The others are No. 4 Cameron Reddish and No. 6 Tre Jones. Both Reddish and Jones picked Duke, which has signed the top-ranked recruiting class in the nation each of the past two years, according to 247Sports. Kentucky and Duke have had the nation's top two recruiting classes (in some order) each of the past four years, according to 247Sports.
