A massive get for Matthew Mitchell and the Wildcats.

Treasure Hunt is a top-10 player nationally in women’s hoops, and she’s now a future Wildcat.

On Monday, Hunt committed to Kentucky over the Auburn Tigers, Baylor Bears, South Carolina Gamecocks and Mississippi State Bulldogs.

Hunt, from Chattanooga (TN), took an official visit to Lexington for Big Blue Madness. She also visited her four other finalists before making her decision.

The 6-2 wing is ranked No. 10 overall in 2020 by All Star Girls Report and 28th overall by ESPN.

In an interview with the Herald-Leader, Bret McCormick of All Star Girls Report gave a brief scouting report of Hunt and what makes her so special.

“There’s no reason Treasure can’t be a pro,” McCormick said. “She’s already got a great body — great size — and she’s always been skilled. … She’s a good athlete. Her three-point shot has gotten a lot better — she has a deep range, and that will continue to get better. She can play multiple positions, probably the ‘2’ the ‘3’ and the ‘4’. She’s a matchup problem.”

One of Hunt’s former teammates is Kentucky sophomore and reigning Freshman of the Year Rhyne Howard, so that likely played a big part in helping the Cats land this elite recruit.

Kentucky now has has three commits for the 2020 class, including four-star point guard Nyah Leveretter and four-star shooting guard Erin Toller.
