Quickley

Immanuel Quickley and Cameron Reddish — two of UK’s top recruiting targets in the class of 2018 — took unofficial visits this weekend.

Quickley visited Maryland, his home state school, for the Terrapins’ game against Michigan State on Saturday. The 6-foot-3 point guard is ranked by Scout.com as the No. 2 player at that position and No. 10 overall recruit in the 2018 class.

Reddish — a 6-7 wing from Norristown, Pa. — visited UConn on Sunday. He’s the No. 4 overall player in the Scout.com rankings and a high school teammate of UK target Mohamed Bamba, the No. 2 player in the 2017 class.

Quickley and Reddish both visited UK for Big Blue Madness in October, and both players have scholarship offers from the Wildcats.

Five-star point guard Immanuel Quickley — a major UK recruiting target for 2018 — earned a scholarship offer from Kansas on Friday.

UK Coach John Calipari and assistant coach Joel Justus both watched him quite a bit during the summer recruiting period, and both coaches have visited him at his Maryland high school this fall.

Earlier this month, Quickley cut his recruiting list to UK, Duke, Kansas, Maryland, Miami, Providence, Virginia and Washington.

Scout.com ranks Quickley as the No. 10 player in the 2018 class.
