Maryland basketball makes top 4 for 5-star 2018 PG Immanuel Quickley

New, 42 comments

The Terps are in elite company.

Five-star 2018 point guard Immanuel Quickley included Maryland in his final list of potential suitors Monday.

Quickley named Maryland alongside Kansas, Kentucky and Miami. This iteration of his list eliminates Virginia, Duke and Providence from consideration.

Maryland has missed out on a couple top guard targets recently in Prentiss Hubb and Brandon Slater, but all could be forgiven if the Terps could land Quickley.

Standing at 6’3, Quickley is the No. 2 point guard and the No. 9 overall prospect in the Class of 2018, per the 247Sports Composite rankings. Perhaps more importantly, Quickley is the No. 1 player in Maryland and is right in the Terps’ backyard.

“That's my hometown,” Quickley told Scout.com’s Evan Daniels. “I think hometown always has an advantage. What coach [Mark] Turgeon has done the past two or three years is special.”

Maryland doesn’t have a commit yet for the Class of 2018, but a pledge from Quickley would be an incredible way to kick off the class. Turgeon and company may have to wait a little while, though, as Quickley plans to take all his official visits before making a final decision sometime before his senior season.
