Coach Quentin Hillsman and the Syracuse Orange women’s basketball team landed a commitment from Nyah Wilson on Monday afternoon. Wilson is a 5-foot-8 guard from Duncanville, Tex. and would be a member of the recruiting class of 2021 for the Orange.
ESPN has her ranked as a three-star recruit, and the 19th-best guard in her class. According to her Twitter page, Wilson also picked up an offer from Texas Tech earlier this year. Wilson has already accumulated over 1,000 career points for Duncanville High School and she announced her commitment via her Twitter page earlier on Mondy. She also attended the “Cuse Elite Camp” in August of 2019, so SU has been familiar with her game for a little while now.
Wilson makes for another solid pick-up for Syracuse, as they’ve been able to make some great headway on the recruiting trail of late. The 2020 recruiting class is ranked 4th in the country, only behind the likes of Oregon, UConn and Notre Dame after Coach Q landed three top-100 players and two of the top 15.
It’s never too early to start picking up some playmakers for 2021, as the majority of that class is still undeclared. SU should be poised to continue handling themselves well against elite competition as the talent level on this roster gets better and better.
