Zion Williamson and Immanuel Quickley could pair up in college, which could be very good news for a school like Kentucky.
Williamson, the No. 2 player in the country, has become an online sensation for his ferocious dunking ability.
Immanuel Quickley is the No. 10 player in the nation, and the No. 2 point guard in the class of 2018.
Could the two pair up at the next level? Williamson made it very clear that he’d like to play with Quickley.
He spoke about the relationship after the adidas Gauntlet Finale on Friday. From SEC Country:
He was asked whether or not the talk was true that he and Quickley might want to team up in college.
“There’s a lot of truth to that,” Williamson said. “Me and Immanuel are good friends and we bonded over the Adidas path thing. I just love the way he plays point guard. That’s the type of point guard I want to play with.”
After the event, Williamson sent a snap featuring he and Quickley, with the caption “future teammate” and some eye emojis, which seem to indicate that it is a possibility.

Williamson has not hinted at which school he leans towards, but the group of Clemson, Duke, Kentucky, North Carolina, and South Carolina is generally though of as his top teams, though he has not officially named a list of finalists.
However, Quickley has revealed a leader: Kentucky.
Kansas, Maryland, Louisville, Virginia, and Washington are the other schools that have offered both prospects.
Texas A&M, USC, and Virginia Tech are other schools that have offered Quickley, while Williamson also have offers from Arizona, Auburn, Florida, Georgia, and UCLA.
Package deals often fail to come to fruition, but Kentucky sits in very good position for both of these blue chip stars individually. If they really want to play together, the Wildcats could become a strong favorite.
