We are one week from the NBA Draft, and Immanuel Quickley is one of six former Kentucky Wildcats hoping to hear his name called. Recent mock drafts have Quickley going in the early to mid second round, but after a standout shooting performance at the Draft Combine, there’s talk he could go higher.
SLAM Magazine profiled Quickley’s draft prep in its “Day in the Life” series, following him around his stomping ground in Havre de Grace, Maryland. The 12-minute video features interviews with all of our favorites — his mother Nitrease, aunt Demetria, and sister Shiloah — along with his manager Jide Sodipo and grandfather Marion, who showed off a picture of Quickley and John Calipari when Quickley was in the eighth grade. We also got to see Quickley working out in a t-shirt featuring a picture of him after the win at Vanderbilt, which is pretty fantastic.
Here’s a short clip:
