John Carroll junior guard Immanuel Quickley trims recruiting list to seven schools

Maryland made the cut for five-star John Carroll point guard Immanuel Quickley.

College basketball's coaching carousel has made Immanuel Quickley's recruitment a little easier.

The five-star John Carroll point guard, rated the No. 10 overall prospect in the Class of 2018 by the 247Sports.com composite rankings, told Scout.com's Evan Daniels that he is still considering seven schools: Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, Miami, Maryland, Virginia and Providence.

Absent from that list is Washington, which fired coach Lorenzo Romar last week. The Huskies had been among the favorites to land Quickley, according to 247Sports.com's "Crystal Ball" predictions. Assistant coach Raphael Chillious, an Olney native, apparently had made quite an impression on him with some "tight zebra pants" he wore on an unofficial visit. 

Quickley has remained in touch with Maryland this season. Terps coach Mark Turgeon reportedly visited John Carroll several times this winter, and Quickley visited College Park for the team's games against Ohio State and Michigan State.

The Terps also are recruiting top-40 Gonzaga (D.C.) combo guard Prentiss Hubb.
