Immanuel Quickley will wear Kentucky blue in 2018-19 following the five-star recruit's announcement Friday that he'll play college basketball for the Wildcats.

The 6-foot-3 guard becomes Kentucky's first pledge from the '18 class, in which ESPN ranks him 12th overall. He played under current head coach John Calipari for the USA men's basketball U-19 team this summer, and averaged 6.7 points and 2.4 assists in 18.3 minutes.

As a junior at John Carroll School, Quickley put up 23.7 points and 7.2 assists per game.
