Tennessee State Champion Kennedy Cambridge Signs with Kentucky
LEXINGTON, Ky. – Adding to an already impressive class, University of Kentucky women’s basketball head coach Kyra Elzy has announced the signing of Kennedy Cambridge, who will bring a championship pedigree to Lexington in 2022-23.
Cambridge is the fifth player to sign with Kentucky this season, joining four-star post Tionna Herron (DeSoto, Texas), four-star guard Saniah Tyler (Florissant, Missouri), Miss Kentucky Basketball Amiya Jenkins (Lawrenceburg, Kentucky) and in-state star guard Cassidy Rowe (Virgie, Kentucky).
“We are incredibly excited to officially welcome Kennedy to Big Blue Nation,” Elzy said. “It’s rare in the late singing period you have a chance to sign such an incredible talent like Kennedy. We absolutely fell in love with her and her family during the recruiting process. Her basketball pedigree speaks for itself. She is athletic and explosive but plays under control, which is exactly what we want for a guard in our system. Kennedy really took her offensive game to the next level this season. We think her skillset is going to translate well to the SEC. Our staff is looking forward to working with her and seeing her in Kentucky blue very soon.”
Below is a detailed look at Cambridge and what she will bring to Lexington next season.
