Syracuse, NY – After entering the weekend without any recruits from the 2022 class, the Syracuse women’s basketball program will have two incoming freshmen to add to its revamped 2022-23 roster.
Kennedi Perkins, a 5-foot-6 guard from Boilingbrook High School (Illinois), has committed to Syracuse, she announced on Sunday.
Perkins’ addition comes one day after Lexi McNabb, the daughter of former Syracuse quarterback Donovan McNabb and former SU women’s basketball guard Raquel (Nurse) McNabb, signed with the team.
According to ESPN, Perkins is described as an explosively athletic floor-leader with a scorer’s mentality. She can create her own shot, split traps and has an exceptional mid-range game. She is rated three-stars and the No. 25 point guard in her class by ESPN.
Perkins led Boilingbrook last season with 13 points per game.
Perkins received offers from 14 schools since 2019, including Michigan State, Missouri, Loyola Chicago, Hofstra, Western Michigan, Vanderbilt and Austin Peay.
Syracuse’s roster currently stands at 13 with the addition of Perkins. She joins McNabb; Buffalo transfers Dyaisha Fair, Georgia Woolley, Cheyenne McEvans and Saniaa Wilson; Kentucky center Olivia Owens; Temple forward Kyra Wood; and the Orange’s five returning players: Teisha Hyman, Alaina Rice, Eboni Walker, Nyah Wilson and Ava Irvin.
