Kansas Latest to Offer 2018 Point Guard Immanuel Quickley
Kansas head coach Bill Self offered a scholarship on Friday to Class of 2018 point guard Immanuel Quickley
Quickley is down to eight schools: Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Miami, Providence, Virginia and Washington. Now, all have offered except Duke.
“Basketball season is here now along with academics picking up,” Quickley told Scout. “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 6-foot-3 Quickley out of John Carroll (MD) visited numerous schools in recent weeks, including Washington, Kansas, Kentucky, Miami, Kentucky, Louisville, Virginia and Duke.
Quickley helped the USA U17 team win a gold medal this summer
He was watched by a slew of coaches both at that event in Spain and on the Adidas Gauntlet circuit with Baltimore Elite.
