By Sports Department: Tim Hill

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) -- Dawn Staley got the call she was waiting for Wednesday afternoon, but A'ja Wilson couldn't help having a little fun with her new coach in the process.

Wilson, the top-ranked women's basketball recruit in the country, decided there was no place like home when she chose USC basketball over perennial powerhouse programs UConn, Tennessee and UNC Wednesday.

The Heathwood Hall standout was the last recruit in the top 100 to make her college selection, and she made Staley sweat out the final phone call just minutes before making her decision on national television.
