Marion County’s Makayla Epps commits to UK women


Posted on August 27, 2012 by Steve Jones


Marion County High School all-state point guard Makayla Epps, regarded as one of the nation’s best 2013 basketball prospects, committed to the University of Kentucky women’s team on Monday during an unofficial visit to the school, her high school and AAU coaches confirmed.


She had been committed to the University of Louisville until reopening her recruitment last week.


She was accompanied on the visit by her father, Anthony, a former point guard for the Wildcats, and received a scholarship offer from UK only on Monday, said David Tapley, who coached Epps on the Kentucky Premier club.


Marion County coach Trent Milby also confirmed the decision.


Epps, a 5-foot-11 point guard, is the second commitment in a week from a Marion County star who had formerly been a U of L pledge.


Forward Kyvin Goodin-Rogers committed to UK coach Matthew Mitchell during an unofficial visit to Lexington last Tuesday.


Epps is ranked as the nation’s No. 15 prospect and the top point guard by the All-Star Girls Report. She is the nation’s No. 37 senior, according to ESPN.com’s HoopGurlz rankings.


Epps, a top candidate for Miss Basketball this season, is capable of playing point guard, shooting guard or small forward, Tapley said, but excels as a primary ball-handler.


Epps averaged 17.3 points, 4.1 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 2.4 steals per game for the state runners-up last season.
