"First of all I would like to thank GOD," wrote Wilson. "Second I would like to say thank you so much, to my mother Michelle and my father Kent. You guys have always been there for me through the ups and downs, always believing in me. I will never forget all the sacrifices that you BOTH went through to get me here. I would like to thank my family and my friends. A true thank you to Coach Lees for giving me that hard PUSH, because it was truly needed. I want to thank Coach Dorian Williams of Hoop Dreams Athletics. He pushed me to limits I could of never imagined. He forced me to be uncomfortable...
I believe that Coach Kelly Graves is the best in the business. With that being said, I will be furthering my academic career at the University of Oregon. Let's go Ducks. - Arielle Wilson
Wilson spent last season playing for Kilgore College in Texas where she averaged 1.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks per game in 14.1 minutes. She started in 10 of her 29 appearances last season.
She will most likely add depth at center for the Ducks who currently have 6'7" redshirt sophomore Sedona Prince and 6'6" senior Lydia Giomi retuning in Eugene next season, as well as incoming five-star freshman 6'4" Angela Dugalic.
Wilson was rated as a three-star recruit by ESPN coming out of Northwood Temple HS in 2018.
