A'ja Wilson receives high praise from Deshaun Watson, others as college career ends

A'ja Wilson: being a Gamecock was 'the best four years' as she leaves lasting basketball legacy

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - It's not every day when a Clemson Tiger salutes a South Carolina Gamecock for their efforts on the field or court.

However, Tuesday was a little different. Former Clemson star and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson honored South Carolina hoops star A'ja Wilson for all she has accomplished over the last four years at USC.

Watson was among the many to congratulate Wilson on having a stellar career with the Garnet & Black including Buffalo Bills defensive end and former Clemson standout Shaq Lawson, WNBA legend Sheryl Swoopes, CNN contributor and former South Carolina representative Bakari Sellers, and media personality Charlamagne Tha God.

With all the love that Wilson has received on Twitter, it's hard to limit her impact on South Carolina and women's basketball to just 240 characters.
