Former Jacksonville University guard and the team’s leading scorer, Erin Wilson, has joined the UTEP women’s basketball team as a transfer, head coach Kevin Baker announced Thursday.
“We are so excited to have Erin Wilson join our basketball program. Erin is a terrific all-around player. She can score off the dribble, solid from mid-range, and can shoot the three. She has a strong defensive motor and knows how to rebound the ball,” Head Coach Kevin Baker shared.
“Before Erin got hurt last season she was one of the top players in her respective conference. She has the ability and athleticism to be an outstanding UTEP Miner for years to come. Erin’s signing rounds out one of the best recruiting classes we have had in my tenure in El Paso, Texas.”
Wilson will have three years of eligibility with the Miners.
