Kentucky women’s basketball signee Treasure Hunt is a Jordan Brand All-Star.

Hunt, a five-star prospect out of Chattanooga, TN, has been named to the Jordan Brand Classic scheduled for Friday, which annually gathers the best high school basketball talent in the country for an all-star game in March. The high-profile event is set for March 27 at 6 p.m. ET at Wintrust Arena in Chicago.

The top-ten prospect in the class of 2020 will join Kentucky men’s basketball signees BJ Boston, Terrence Clarke, Devin Askew, and Isaiah Jackson in Chicago.

Earlier this year, Hunt was named one of 10 semifinalists for the 2020 Naismith High School Girls Trophy and was tabbed to the 2020 McDonald’s All-American Game roster becoming the 11th UK signee to be selected to play in the prestigious game in Matthew Mitchell’s tenure.

Hunt, along with Nyah Leveretter and Erin Toller, signed National Letters of Intent to play at Kentucky back in November and will enroll this summer. The three signees make up a top-20 recruiting class in the nation according to ESPN.com. Leveretter and Toller were both honored as nominees for the McDonald’s All-American Game and are having great senior seasons in high school. Leveretter is averaging 13.6 points and 11.6 rebounds per game this season for Westwood High School while Toller is leading Sacred Heart by averaging 16.5 points per game hitting over 40 percent from 3. Both Leveretter and Toller reached 1,000 career points earlier this season.

Hunt is ranked as a top-10 player in the 2020 class by the All-Star Girls Report, while ProspectsNation.com tabs her as their 15th best player in the class. A five-star guard according to ESPN.com, Hunt was recently a gold medalist from the USA Basketball U18 3×3 Tournament, defeating some of the best players in the nation under the age of 18 in the event. The Chattanooga, Tennessee, native was one of five women’s players in the nation invited to Steph Curry’s 30 Select Camp in 2019 and was also invited to USA Basketball U18 tryouts, the Slam Summer Classic in New York City, the John Lucas Top 160 Camp and was a member of the 2019 Run for the Roses All-Tournament Team. Hunt had an incredible junior season at Hamilton Heights Christian Academy, where she is coached by her mother, Keisha. The guard averaged 19.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 2.3 steals as a junior. This year, Hunt has upped those numbers averaging 24.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.8 steals per game.

    I can’t wait to see what Hunt will do playing alongside Rhyne Howard.

      Me either. If she brings the same kind of skill and energy to compliment Rhyne, along with some serviceable post players, the next couple of years will be special for the Hoop Cats. GO BIG BLUE!!!!

      I’d love to see that happen, I’m afraid it’s just a dream though. Rhyne is a top pick in the draft fellas and maybe the number 1 overall pick. She’s gone! I’d love it for her to give it another year though.

    She is definitely part of the all-name team!
