COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A'ja Wilson is South Carolina's most-talked about newcomer on the women's basketball team this fall and she's part of the country's No. 2 signing class.

Coach Dawn Staley brought in two other McDonald's All-Americans besides Wilson in 6-foot-4 forward Jatarie White and 5-6 guard Bianca Cuevas. Those three along with fellow freshmen in guards Kaydra Duckett and Doniyah Cliney all come in looking to make a quick and significant impact for the defending Southeastern Conference regular-season champions.

Staley wouldn't have it any other way. The basketball Hall-of-Famer has steadily built the Gamecocks into a program the country's best prospects can't ignore and she won't stand on protocol if her younger players earn the right to play.

Staley says there could be difficult decisions on playing time ahead.

    With offenses becoming increasingly explosive, plugging the holes is more imperative than ever. It's no surprise Alabama and Florida top the list, but the rest of the rankings may surprise you.
