Five-star Kentucky basketball recruits Immanuel Quickley and Keldon Johnson will play in games on ESPNU on Monday, part of the network’s coverage of the Hoophall Classic in Springfield, Mass.

Quickley — a 6-foot-3 point guard — leads John Carroll (Md.) against Hudson Catholic (N.J.) at 11 a.m. Monday. Johnson — a 6-6 wing — leads Oak Hill Academy (Va.) against University School (Fla.) at 3 p.m.

The University School squad also features Vernon Carey, the No. 1 overall prospect in the class of 2019 and an early recipient of a UK scholarship offer.

Quickley and Johnson both signed with Kentucky in November.

UK Coach John Calipari watched five-star recruits Moses Brown, Scottie Lewis and Bryan Antoine at the Hoophall Classic on Sunday, and it’s possible he could stick around to see his future Wildcats on Monday.
