Immanuel Quickley is by far one of the most coveted players in the 2018 class.
The five-star point guard conducted an on-air interview with CSN Mid-Atlantic and revealed that he would be cutting his recruitment list to three schools. Quickley announced that he has taken Maryland off of his list.
“I’m actually taking Maryland off my list.” Quickley said. “They don’t contact meas much, so it only makes sense to go forward with those three.”
Quickley is now deciding between Kansas, Kentucky, and Miami (Fla.) He has official visits set up with each school beginning with the Jayhawks on Sept. 2.
It appears that Kentucky is the team to beat in Quickley’s recruitment. The Wildcats currently hold all 18 Crystal Ball predictions for his services.
According to 247Sports’ Composite rankings, Quickley is rated as the third-best point guard and the No. 9 overall player in the 2018 class. The John Carroll School (Md.) star is also rated as the top prospect in Maryland just ahead of Terrapin commit Jalen Smith from Mount Saint Joseph.
Coach Mark Turgeon already has made it clear that he’s still searching for a point guard in the 2018 class. Maryland is still in the running for Providence Day School (NC) guard Devon Dotson, who plays on the same AAU team as current Terp commit Aaron Wiggins.
According to 247Sports, Dotson is set to visit Kansas on Friday. The Jayhawks own all but one of the 15 Crystal Ball predictions for the four-star guard.
It would appear that Turgeon and the staff will be chasing Dotson until the end of his recruitment.
