Twitter reactions to Immanuel Quickley declaring for the NBA Draft

IQ is heading to the NBA Draft

NCAA Basketball: Lamar at Kentucky Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

The reigning SEC Player of the Year is headed to the NBA Draft. Immanuel Quickley announced his intentions early this morning that he will be foregoing his final two seasons as a Kentucky Wildcats player and signing with an agent.

Quickley had a breakout year this pas season, really taking off against Louisville, and carrying that momentum into SEC play, in which he averaged close to 20 points per game while shooting at a 43% clip from three-point land.

Quickley leaves Kentucky as one of the more beloved players of the Calipari era and will now try his hand at the professional level.

Here’s how social media and the Big Blue Nation reacted to the news:
