Seygan Robins, one of the top girls’ basketball recruits in Kentucky, committed to play at the University of Louisville on Wednesday.

The 5-foot-9 Robins, a rising junior point guard for Mercer County High School, chose the Cardinals over scholarship offers from Kentucky, Western Kentucky and Central Florida, among others.

Robins was named to the Herald-Leader’s 2016 All-State squad as a First Team selection after a stellar sophomore season in which she averaged 16.2 points per game.

Robins helped lead Mercer County (31-6) to the semifinals of the state tournament last March.

She is Louisville’s first commitment for the class of 2018.

In an interview with Scout.com‘s Cardinal Authority, Robins said her choice came down to Louisville or Kentucky.

“It’s definitely a combination of things,” she told Cardinal Authority. “I’ve always really loved the coaching staff there. Every time that I go up there it’s like a family environment and it just feels like home. The players are really comforting and inviting. It’s just a really good environment.”
