RALEIGH, N.C. - Women's basketball coach Wes Moore announced Wednesday that guard Dominique Wilson has transferred to NC State after spending her freshman season at Arkansas.
The Powder Springs, Ga., native will sit out the 2013-14 season due to NCAA transfer rules, and then will have three years of eligibility remaining with the Wolfpack.
"Dominique is coming off an outstanding freshman year where she performed at a very high level making the transition to the college game," said Moore. "We're excited about her ability to handle and score the ball in a variety of ways, and her deep range can really stretch a defense.
"Being from the Atlanta area, our entire staff is familiar with Dominique and the high quality person that she is. With a red shirt season to learn our system, we expect Dominique to make an instant impact when she hits the floor for the Pack."
As a freshman in 2012-13, Wilson made 19 starts and saw action in all 33 games for a Razorbacks team that finished with a 20-13 record. She averaged 6.6 points and 2.5 rebounds while averaging 23 minutes per game.
Wilson started 14 of the final 15 games of the season, and over that stretch averaged 8.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.
She scored in double figures nine times, including becoming the first Arkansas player since 2006 to score 17 or more points in three-consecutive contests. Wilson poured in a career-best 19 points in a triple-overtime win at Alabama. She also added 18 points in a win over Missouri and 17 against No. 8 Kentucky.
Wilson was rated a four-star guard by ESPN HoopGurlz coming out of McEachern High School. She led the Indians to a state title and a No. 2 national ranking in her senior season. She played club for A.O.T Lady Rebels for coach Omar Cooper.
