COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) A'ja Wilson, considered one of the nation's top women's basketball recruits, announced Wednesday she will play for South Carolina.

Wilson told a national television audience that she had decided to stay close to home, rejecting overtures from national champion Connecticut, North Carolina and Tennessee. The announcement ended nearly one year of speculation.

"It's just really a great program and it's like I'm wearing this shirt, there's no place like home," Wilson said. "They're on the rise and I would love to be a part of it."
