Matthew Mitchell has landed his first commitment for the class of 2021 and it comes in the form of a four-star point guard.

Jada Walker, a 5-foot-6 guard from Richmond, VA, made her choice to attend college at the University of Kentucky, delivering the announcement via social media on Saturday evening.

Both espnW and Prospects Nation have tabbed Walker as a four-star recruit. She chose the ‘Cats over N.C. State, Mississippi State, Arizona, and Michigan. According to Dan Olson of ESPN, here is what he thinks about the newest Wildcat (from 2019):

“Confident game manager executes in half-court game; left-handed playmaker knocks down jumpers with range to the arc; elusive off the dribble, penetrates and finds a way to the rim, takes contact and finishes plays, gets to the stripe; brings consistency, toughness to the back court; clock manager, basketball IQ.”

Walker is the first chip to fall into place for the 2021 recruiting class and Matthew Mitchell is just getting started. Stay tuned…
