UK assistant coach Joel Justus is meeting with five-star point guard Immanuel Quickley in Maryland on Tuesday afternoon, the Herald-Leader has learned, three days before the highly touted playmaker takes his official visit to Lexington.
Quickley — a 6-foot-3 prospect from the Baltimore area — has narrowed his recruiting list to Kentucky, Kansas and Miami, and he took an official visit to KU earlier this month. He was scheduled to officially visit Miami this past weekend, but that trip was postponed due to Hurricane Irma. It has not yet been rescheduled.
Kentucky will host Quickley for an official visit starting Friday and ending Sunday morning. The Wildcats are heavy favorites to land Quickley, the No. 8 overall prospect in the 2018 class, according to Scout.com.
