Matthew Mitchell and UK Hoops picked up a big 2017 commitment from Top 100 Recruit Keke McKinney of Knoxville, Tennessee. The 6’1 forward had recently received an offer from Tennessee as well as Ole Miss and Mississippi State before choosing UK in a special ceremony at Fulton High School this afternoon.
McKinney is rated as the 62nd best player in the Class of 2017 by ProspectsNation.com after she averaged 18 points and 11 boards as a junior. Judging by recruiting stars, this is the highest rated of four signees for the Class of 2017 recruiting class. It’s a huge deal to sign a top recruit under the noses of Tennessee, especially after the tough last few months for UK Hoops.
Here’s the YouTube Video from the Knoxville News Sentinel following McKinney’s commitment.
