Sophomore post player Alexis Jennings will transfer from the Kentucky women’s basketball program. Jennings becomes the seventh player this season from the program.

UK Athletics released the following statement from UK Hoops head coach Matthew Mitchell regarding Jennings’ departure:

“I talked last week about needing to give our players a clear path forward in our program and it saddens us that Alexis did not see a path for her at Kentucky,” Mitchell said. “She alerted me today that she felt it was in her best interest to finish her career elsewhere and we owe her that opportunity. I appreciate her hard work the past two years and hope she finds success.

“The turnover we have had has not been easy on our players and it’s critical that we give them some stability. Part of that is getting a quality staff in place and I am confident we are going to do that in the coming days. Our focus continues to be on the players in the locker room and the recruits that we are confident would make great Wildcats.”
