SPOTLIGHT ON TALENT
Guard, John Carroll School, 2018
By Chris Cobb, Junior, Towson University
John Carrol High senior Immanuel Quickley is a University of Kentucky commit. At Kentucky, Quickley will play under Hall of Fame coach John Calipari in arguably the best college basketball program in the country. Quickley already has some experience playing for Calipari when he played for the United States FIBA U-19 World Cup team that Calipari coached. “What he’s done with point guards and things of that nature, that just speaks volumes of what he can do with me in the same position,” Quickley said of Calipari. His sophomore season, he led the Patriots to the Baltimore Catholic League championship over Mount St. Joseph. Quickley scored the Patriots’ final nine points including the game-winning three-pointer to seal a 51-50 win. Quickley looks to have the same success as last season averaging 23.7 points and 7.2 assists per game.
