University of Kentucky women’s basketball signee Chanin Scott has been released from her national letter of intent, the school said Saturday, confirming media reports earlier in the week.
And it looks as though Scott has already found a new home.
Scott, a 6-foot swing player from Charlotte, N.C., has committed to play at Georgia Tech, according to Bret McCormick of the All-Star Girls Report.
Scott joined McDonald’s All-American and fellow 2016 signee Lindsey Corsaro of Indianapolis in requesting a release from UK after a series of player and assistant coach departures rocked Coach Matthew Mitchell’s program.
Mitchell began to rebuild his 2016 class by signing point guard Jaida Roper of Memphis on Thursday night.
Kentucky has also seen one of its two committed players for 2017 re-open her recruitment in Lindsey Duvall of Bullitt East. Kameron Roach, a 2017 point guard from South Carolina, remains committed to Kentucky.
The Wildcats’ 2016-17 roster currently has seven players: Seniors Makayla Epps and Evelyn Akhator, juniors Makenzie Cann and Alyssa Rice, sophomores Taylor Murray and Maci Morris, and Roper.
