THE FLATS Caitlyn Wilson, a 5-10 guard from Cordova, Tenn., has signed a grant-in-aid to join Georgia Tech women’s basketball, head coach Nell Fortner announced on Monday.

Wilson joins the Yellow Jackets after playing three seasons at Cincinnati where she took the floor in 77 games, earning the start in 42. During her time as a Bearcat, Wilson averaged 7.8 points and 1.8 rebounds per game, while shooting 32.6 percent from the field and 32.9 percent from three-point distance. Hitting at least 50 threes each season, Wilson finished sixth in Cincinnati program history with 163 made three-pointers in her career.

As a senior last season, Wilson finished fourth on the team in scoring, averaging 6.6 points per game, while leading Cincinnati with 54 made three-pointers behind a team-best and career-high 36 percent shooting effort from beyond the arc. She averaged 20.2 minutes per game, appearing in 29 games and starting 10.

Wilson finished second in the American Athletic Conference with 2.1 three-point field goals per game as a junior (2021-22) and third in three-point field goals made with 58. She ranked first in the AAC with 2.55 three-point field goals per game and 51 three-pointers made as a sophomore. Wilson logged a personal-best 23 points against Temple on 8-of-13 shooting from the field, 5-of-10 from three-point distance, in her first season with Cincinnati.

The guard played her freshman season (2019-20) at Chipola Junior College in Marianna, Fla., starting 18-of-27 games played. She averaged 13.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 0.9 assists to earn All-Panhandle Conference First Team honors. Wilson shot 37.5 percent from the field, including a 35 percent efficiency from three-point range, averaging 3.4 made three-pointers per contest. As a freshman, she scored in double-figures in 15 games, including scoring a career-high 36 points against Denmark Tech when she shot 10-of-19 from the floor and hit nine three-pointers.
