Wyatt is considered a top 100 player in the 2017 class, where she averaged 22 points and 10 rebounds a game as a junior at Columbus High School. She is listed as the 63rd overall prospect in the nation according to Prospects Nation, and was named the All Bi-City Girls Basketball Player of the Year in Columbus, Georgia last season.
The official UK Hoops account seemed to be pretty hyped about the commitment, as well.
