Kentucky freshman, John Carroll grad Immanuel Quickley continuing to find footing

By the time Immanuel Quickley had wrapped up his basketball career at John Carroll in Bel Air last winter, he was lauded as The Baltimore Sun’s All-Metro Player of the Year, a top-five point guard by several national scouting services and a McDonald’s All-American.

And then the Havre de Grace resident began his freshman year at Kentucky, where the accolades were replaced by adjustments.

“It’s been really interesting,” Quickley said last week. “There’s been a lot of ups and downs. It’s a lot harder than I thought it was going to be — just the day-to-day grind. But it’s been good overall. I’ve learned a lot of new stuff as a point guard that’s getting me better.”
