John Carroll junior point guard Immanuel Quickley took a step closer to making his college decision when he cut his list of schools down to four on Monday, according to Scout’s Evan Daniels.
Maryland, Miami, Kansas, and Kentucky are the schools the five-star recruit is considering. Quickley believes each school fits him well on and off the court, according to Daniels.
Quickley, who is one of Maryland’s top targets in the 2018 class, thinks the Terps are appealing because he will be playing close to home.
“That’s my hometown. I think hometown always has an advantage,” Quickley told Daniels. “What coach [Mark] Turgeon has done the past two or three years is special.”
Besides Quickley, Maryland are looking at Silvio De Sousa (IMG Academy), Jalen Smith (Mount Saint Joseph), Cameron Reddish (Westtown School) and other high-profile prospects.
Quickley is ranked the top player in Maryland, and the second best point guard in the 2018 class. Quickley is averaging 14 points, four rebounds, and three assists for Team BBC in the Adidas Uprising.
He plans to make his commitment before the start of senior year.
“I’m planning to take all of my official visits,” Quickley said to Daniels. “Once I plan them, I’ll take them and make a decision before I start my senior year.”
