Teonni Key is heading to the SEC.

The former UNC women's basketball player announced her commitment to Kentucky on social media on Monday afternoon. She'll join forces with Kenny Brooks, who was the former coach of the Virginia Tech Hokies.

On April 2, Key became the fourth UNC women's basketball player to enter the transfer portal. Essentially two weeks later, Key has found herself a new home.

Key spent three seasons UNC women's basketball program. After redshirting her true freshman season due to injury, Key returned during the 2022-2023 season and appeared in 28 games. This past season, the Cary, North Carolina native appeared in 23 games, averaging 2.7 points and 2.5 rebounds over 9.5 minutes of action.

Her time in Chapel Hill was hampered by injuries, but she did show flashes of her true potential. Although she didn't carve out the role that she hoped to at North Carolina, the versatile forward hopes to make a major impact with her new team.

The college basketball world has completely changed over the last few years, as thousands of players across the country have entered their name in the transfer portal in hope of finding a fresh start. Key is among those student-athletes, as plenty of talented basketball players will be competing for new teams this fall.
