The rebuild of Virginia women’s basketball continued on Wednesday when Missouri State commit Cady Pauley announced she had flipped her recruitment to UVA.

Pauley, a senior at Milan High School in Missouri, announced on her Twitter account, that she has committed to play for new Virginia coach Amaka Agugua-Hamilton, who had previously been head coach at Missouri State.

“Throughout the recruiting process I was looking for a family atmosphere and coaches that believed in me,” Pauley wrote on her Twitter account. “I found that from day 1 with @UVACoachMox and staff. So excited to announce my commitment to play in the ACC at the University of Virginia.”

According to the Springfield (Mo.) News-Leader, Pauley ranked among the top scorers in the state throughout her career and averaged 33 points and 9.6 rebounds per game this past season. She finished 10th nationally statistically according to MaxPreps.

Prior to Pauley’s commitment to UVA, the Cavaliers received a commitment from Notre Dame transfer Samantha Brunelle from nearby Greene County. Brunelle has two years of eligibility remaining.
