Texas received a verbal commitment on Sunday from Cypress Creek basketball player Kyndall Hunter. The 5-7 Hunter is rated by espnW HoopGurlz as the No. 24 prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle. She is the class’ seventh-best point guard.

Hunter joins a Class of 2021 at Texas that already includes the No. 6 (Aaliyah Moore) and No. 10 (Rori Harmon) recruits in the country. Even before Hunter’s commitment, espnW regarded UT’s recruiting class as the nation’s fourth-best.

Hunter and Harmon are classmates and teammates at Cypress Creek High. Harmon pledged to UT in April. Last season, Cypress Creek was the runner-up in Class 6A. Hunter’s 24 points led all players in the Class 6A championship game.

Hunter averaged 20 points and 2.8 steals per game during the 2019-20 season. As a junior, she recorded four 30-point performances.
