Kameron Roach, class of 2017 point guard, commits to play for UK women

Kameron Roach, a 5-foot-6 point guard from South Carolina, confirmed that she committed to Kentucky and Coach Matthew Mitchell on Friday.

The Lower Richland junior, who averaged 11.5 points and 3.7 assists last season, said she picked Kentucky over South Carolina, Clemson, Dayton, Seton Hall, Charlotte, Furman and several others.

Roach is No. 56 in the Hoopgurlz Super 60 rankings for the class of 2017. She is UK's first commitment for that class.

"I'm proud to be a part of the Big Blue Nation," she messaged.
