Immanuel Quickley is an athletic, skilled combo guard that excels as a shooter and defender in games. He shoots the ball very well from long range, and he also is an aggressive defender that can lock down his man. While he’s largely played off the ball in college, he’s shown flashes of being able to run the point, and he’s shown the floor vision to be able to notch assists when necessary.
Before the start of his freshman season, he played very well in the preseason exhibition games. He had his ups and downs as a freshman, but he had a very good sophomore season. Currently, he is a second round prospect, and he is a skilled combo guard that could be a plus-level defender if he finds his way into the NBA.
