Liberty women's soccer and head coach Lang Wedemeyer have signed a 10th player to its Class of 2020, signing Tennessee transfer McKinley Burkett.

"We are incredibly excited to have McKinley coming to join our program," Wedemeyer said. "She has a wealth of experience and should make an immediate impact on our team."

Burkett is the second graduate transfer Wedemeyer has added in the last two seasons, as Nicole Crutchfield wrapped up her playing career at Liberty in 2019 after transferring from North Carolina.

Burkett played in 38 career games at Tennessee, which included six starts. Playing in the midfield and as a forward, Burkett tallied 14 points throughout her time at Tennessee, including four goals and six assists.

As Burkett makes her way to Liberty, she will be returning to her home state. She is a native of Moseley, Va. where she attended Banner Christian School. Coming out of high school, Burkett was rated No. 104 on the IMG Academy Top 150 list for 2017 after totaling 175 goals and 28 assists during her time at Banner Christian. Burkett played club soccer in the ECNL for Richmond United and was a member of the ODP Virginia State team from 2011-14.
