Notable Stats: 22.6 points per game, 11.8 rebounds per game, and shot almost 55% from the field last season. Wilson also ended with 258 career blocks (the most in program history).

Position: Forward

Height: 6’5”

If nobody in South Carolina has started a petition to build a statue of A’ja Wilson yet, I’m sure it won’t be long. She not only won a national championship with the Gamecocks, but notched a clean sweep of National Player of the Year awards in her final season.

Wilson’s length, versatility and pure athleticism will serve her very well in the WNBA. She is a player who will make an immediate impact and has all the ability in the world to become the face of the Las Vegas Aces in her rookie season.
