CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia women’s basketball head coach Amaka Agugua-Hamilton announced today (June 5) the signing of Kamryn Kitchen (Charlotte, N.C.), who will join the Cavaliers for the upcoming 2024-25 season.

“I’m very excited to officially welcome Kam into our family,” said Agugua-Hamilton. “Since her first visit to UVA a few years ago, it was clear that she would seamlessly fit into our culture. Kam is a high-character student-athlete who knows how to grind on and off the court. She is graduating from high school early and enrolling at UVA this August, which is a true testament to her dedication and work ethic. Kam is a shooter who has added so much versatility to her game over the past few years and is going to bring a different dynamic to our offense. Wahoo Nation, you are going to love her.”

A 5-9 guard, Kitchen was previously ranked the nation’s No. 57 prospect in the signing class of 2025, according to ESPN’s HoopGurlz rankings. In just three seasons at Independence High School, Kitchen set the Patriots’ record for 3-pointers made (200). Her junior year, she shot 54 percent from the field and 42 percent from 3-point range. She earned all-district honors in 2023 and 2024 and was crowned the Southwestern 4A Player of the Year in 2023.

Kitchen was one of 14 elite shooters nationwide to receive an invite to Steph Curry’s shooting camp in the summer of 2023. On the travel circuit, Kitchen competed for Team Curry.
