Maxey received praise from his former head coach in UK's John Calipari as well as ex-Wildcat teammate Immanuel Quickley:

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS

John Calipari on ESPN2 says Tyrese Maxey will be the next Jamal Murray or Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, i.e. a Kentucky guard overlooked in the draft who later proves better suited for the NBA level. Could have cited Herro and Booker as well.

Immanuel Quickley @IQ_GodSon

Great Job my boy as usual 🤝 @TyreseMaxey Proud of ya

The 6'5" Edwards averaged 19.1 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists for the Georgia Bulldogs during his lone year at school. The 6'3" Maxey posted 14.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in his one season with UK.

Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman ranked Edwards and Maxey fourth and eighth, respectively, on his latest 2020 NBA draft big board.
