Virginia women’s basketball gets commitment from four-star guard Kamryn Kitchen

Coach Mox is once again hitting the recruiting trail. Fresh off landing four incoming transfers in April and May, Virginia women’s basketball picked up another recruiting victory, this time on the high school recruiting front, as four-star guard Kamryn Kitchen announced her commitment to UVA on Wednesday afternoon.

Amaka Agugua-Hamilton confirmed the signing of Kitchen, who was originally a member of the Class of 2025 but is reclassifying to the Class of 2024 and will join the program for the 2024-2025 season.

Kitchen, a 6-foot-1 guard from Independence High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, was rated as a four-star prospect and the No. 57 overall prospect in the country in the class of 2025 in ESPN’s HoopGurlz rankings. Kitchen collected an impressive list of offers and a few weeks ago she narrowed her list down to six schools: Illinois, Louisville, Marquette, Virginia Tech, Virginia and Penn State. She then announced last week that she would reclassify to the class of 2024 and make the jump to college basketball next season.

Kitchen ultimately chose the Cavaliers and will join fellow four-star Breona Hurd (Waynesville, MO) in Virginia’s incoming freshman class.

In her senior season at Independence High School, Kitchen shot 54% from the field and 42% from beyond the arc and set her school’s three-pointer record in just three seasons with 200 made triples. Kitchen was the 2023 Southwestern 4A Player of the Year and is a two-time all-district selection. She was also one of only fourteen players to receive an invitation to Stephen Curry’s shooting camp last summer and competed for Team Curry on the summer travel circuit.

โ€œI am very excited to officially welcome Kam to our family,โ€ Coach Mox said of Kitchen. โ€œSince her first visit to UVA a few years ago, it was clear that she would fit seamlessly into our culture. Kam is a high-character student-athlete who knows how to perform both on and off the field. She is graduating early from high school and enrolling at UVA in August, which is a true testament to her dedication and work ethic. Kam is a shooter who has added so much versatility to her game in recent years and will bring a different dynamic to our offense. Wahoo Nation, you’re going to love her.โ€
