Kentucky signs 3 guards as part of 2018 recruiting class

November 16, 2017

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky has signed guards Tyler Herro, Immanuel Quickley and Keldon Johnson to national letters of intent.

Rivals and 247 Sports rate the 6-foot-4, 180-pound Quickley among the top 13 nationally and the top three at his position. He averaged 23.7 points and 7.2 assists per game last season for John Carroll School in Bel Air, Maryland, and was part of last summer’s Team USA Under-19 World Cup squad led by Wildcats coach John Calipari.

The 6-5, 195-pound Herro is considered a top-40 prospect. He averaged 23.9 points per game for Whitnall High School in Greenfield, Wisconsin, and was among 54 players chosen for last month’s USA Basketball’s Junior National Team minicamp. The 6-6 Johnson, from Virginia’s Oak Hill Academy, is a top-18 prospect and also participated in the minicamp.
