Five-star point guard from Franklin County chooses Lady Vols over Kentucky



They made the final cut, but Kentucky couldn’t manage to hold onto a highly-coveted in-state recruit.

On Sunday afternoon five-star point guard from the class of 2021, Brooklynn Miles, announced her intentions to attend the Tennessee Volunteers Women’s Basketball program. The Richmond, KY native chose the Lady Vols over the Wildcats, along with Purdue, Miami (FL), and NC State.

At 5-foot-6, Miles is ranked as the 46th overall prospect in her class and the ninth rated point guard. She initially received an offer from Matthew Mitchell and the UK coaching staff all the way back in April of 2019, the second college to approach her after Eastern Kentucky a year prior. From there, her recruiting picked up. UT was actually a late-player, extending Miles an offer just this past April. But a few months later, she decided that moving further down south was in her best interest for the future.

So far, Kentucky currently has one commitment from the 2021 class, another 5-foot-6 point guard named Jada Walker, who ESPN has tabbed as the nation’s 63rd best prospect.

Miles is the only female basketball player from the state of Kentucky ranked in ESPN’s top 100, so missing out on her isn’t ideal. However, Kentucky recently made the final seven for another five-star guard, Damiya Hagemann, who is ranked as the nation’s fifth-best point guard and 19th overall.

    Bye, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.
    And by the way why pick a team less than Ky.

      I am guessing that it has to do with easier opportunity to get on the floor. We have been recruiting really well lately and UT hasn’t been so hot. If it goes South, the NCAA is already passing the transfer rule.

    Why would you go to a lesser program? We have beaten UT for the past 4 years. Their coach is on the hot seat. Oh well it’s her decision.

    Has the world gone crazy? The Tennessee girls are going to UK and the Kentucky girls are going to UT.

    Mitchell didn’t promise her she’d be the starter just because she’s from Kentucky.

    Is that pic really fair to use for this post? It seems a little petty maybe. The lady Vols are an iconic program even if they’ve sucked for several years in a row. Hopefully she will have success except when they play UK. They probably need her more than UK at this point

    How are there 46 5* players in this class? Do they use a different system than the boys? This isn’t a make a break kid at 46 overall, but it probably means two straight “5*” Ms Basketballs leaving the state. Mitchell is paid well enough that shouldn’t happen, brain injury or no brain injury.

    Sounds like a situation of potential playing time and UT presented the better opportunity. It’s her life, her college experience to choose..
    Hope she has no success at our expense and that her decision will benefit our recruitment of the higher ranked point guard recruit we are seeking at this time. Otherwise, wish her well. She’s made a life decision to better herself in a responsible and constructive manner, even if it’s at UT. It’s America…. freedom still rings and …the Vols still suck.
