UK Hoops added its second commitment from the 2018 class with the addition of Rhyne Howard, the No. 10 guard in the nation.
Howard pledged her commitment to the Cats via a Twitter post Friday morning:
I have prayed about it and want to thank my mom for being by my side during this recruitment process. I also would like to thank my uncle, my coaches, my friends, and teammates for their continued support. So with that being said I have decided to continue my academic and athletic careers at the University of Kentucky. Go Wildcats!

Howard, out of Cleveland, Tennessee, picked Kentucky over the national champion South Carolina Gamecocks.
Big get for Matthew Mitchell’s program!
