Kentucky women’s basketball recruits 6-5 center Ramiya White

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) – The University of Kentucky women’s basketball team just received a major addition to its frontcourt for the 2024-25 season, head coach Kyra Elzy announced Friday.

Butler Traditional High School graduate Ramiya White committed to play for the Wildcats early in the signing period.

The 6-5 center is the third-ranked prospect and top-ranked center in the state for the Class of 2024, according to Prep Girls Hoops.

In addition to playing for the Bears, White plays on the Adidas 3SSB circuit under head coach Richard Jeter.

As a sophomore, White averaged 10.4 points per game on 58.3 percent shooting from the field and pulled down 6.1 rebounds per game in helping the Bears win the 22-district championship.

As a junior, he increased his rebounding by nearly two full boards per game, averaging 8.6 points while leading the Bears to their second straight district title.

“Our program is thrilled that Ramiya White is a Wildcat,” Elzy said of the new recruit. “He IS a force to be reckoned with on the scoreboard, which is a great asset to our program, while also being a solid shot blocker. For a postal flyer, he can also run well on the floor, while his mobility is impressive for his height and size.

Off the court, White is an impressive young woman who will bring drive and focus to our locker room.

She also exudes a passion for the state of Kentucky, so I can’t wait for Big Blue Nation to see the Bluegrass product on the field next fall.
