Rutgers women’s basketball lands a 5-star recruit in Kiyomi McMiller

Kiyomi McMiller committed to Rutgers women’s basketball on Saturday afternoon, giving the Scarlet Knights the highest-ranked recruit since head coach Coquese Washington took over the program.

A five-star guard, McMiller is ranked the No. 22 player in the nation by ESPNW. She is a part of the 2024 recruiting class.

McMiller plays for Life Center Academy (Burlington, New Jersey). Through 11 games this season, she is averaging 29.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.

Playing a strong schedule both nationally and in-state, Life Center is currently 5-7 on the season.


She is the second-highest-ranked recruit in the nation in the 2024 class behind five-star guard behind Mikayala Blakes. ESPNW ranks Blakes as the ninth-best recruit in the nation.

For Washington, this is a huge recruiting win for her and the program. Landing a top-tier in-state target who is ranked among the best players in the nation is certainly an important building block for the Scarlet Knights.

McMiller signed an NIL deal with the Jordan Brand 11 months ago.
