Anna Wilson’s clean bill of health spells trouble for upcoming opponents of Stanford University’s women’s basketball team.
Wilson, a Richmond native and sister of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, was held out of the Pac-12 school’s early action due to a concussion suffered last March at the McDonald’s All-America Classic in Chicago.
The touted freshman debuted for Stanford on Dec. 28 with 11 points against Yale. In her first three games, she played 34 minutes, averaging six points for the 12-3 Cardinal.
The 5-foot-9 guard played her eighth- through 11th-grade seasons at Collegiate School in Western Henrico County.
She moved for her senior year to Bellevue, Wash., with her mother Tammy, where she led Bellevue High School to a 29-0 record and a Washington 3A state title.
Bellevue is a short distance from Seattle, just across Lake Washington.
Wilson committed to Stanford University while a sophomore at Collegiate.
