Quickies: Immanuel Quickley Decision Day Edition

New, 2 comments

Quickley decides today and more in today’s quickies.

Hoop Seen

Kentucky has a whole lot of recruiting-related stuff going on this weekend. The headline is Immanuel Quickley’s decision this evening at 6 p.m. The 5-star guard is expected to pick Kentucky, and become UK’s first commit in the class of 2018, hopefully with Zion Williamson and others to follow suit.

But Kentucky will be hosting a ton of highly-touted college football recruits on Saturday as well. A good performance against Florida will go a long way in helping get some of them back to Lexington later.
