Stanford Women's Basketball: Anna Wilson sister of Russell Wilson Commits to Stanford

Winning runs in the Wilson family.

Over the last few weeks, we have been witnessing the very best of Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson. Although things such as his pocket presence and vision have come under fire in the past, he has always been recognized as one of the leagues elite team leaders. Wilson says he got that from his father, and that it runs in his family.

This is good news for Stanford's Women's basketball team, who will be adding Anna Wilson, Russell's younger sister, to their roster for the 2016-17 season according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Wilson is a 5'8 guard who is the 34th rated High School player in the country. She has earned herself a variety of awards that lead to her being so heavily scouted and recruited, including VISAA 1st-Team Division I All State in 2015.

The current season is at it's very beginning and there is already an intense amount of anticipation built up for 2016 and the debut of Anna Wilson. And why wouldn't there be? If she shares the same passion for basketball as her older brother does for football, she will certainly be a force on the hard wood.

Stanford struck gold with Amber Orrange, the Samuelson's, and now again with Wilson. So long as the Cardinal keep recruiting this well, and Tara VanDerveer remains at the helm, Stanford will continue to be a top-tier basketball program for some time.
