South Carolina basketball legend A'ja Wilson has done it all.

Wilson was the highest-rated high school prospect, went to her hometown school, won a National Championship, earned the National Player of the Year, was drafted #1 overall in the WNBA Draft, picked up a couple of MVP awards, and has been a two-time WNBA Finals Champion. Somewhere along the way, she wrote a book, and the list could go on and on.

Something she hasn't done, however, is be a featured guest on a major network's biggest late night talk show. That is changing this week.

On Tuesday night, A'ja Wilson will be on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The show will air on CBS and Paramount+ at 11:35 EST.

Colbert, who was raised in the state of South Carolina, himself, is an avid sports fan and has even been on the cover of Sports Illustrated, another thing he has in common with Wilson. He has claimed South Carolina Gamecocks fandom before, but he has also claimed to be a fan of the rival Clemson Tigers, so that should be taken with a large, orange grain of salt.

A'ja Wilson will join fellow famous Gamecocks like South Carolina football alum Tim "Pops" Frisby and Darius Rucker as individuals who have been invited onto a major late night talk show.

It will be a long day for Wilson as she will begin Tuesday with a spot on Good Morning America. It will be one of the few times that GMA host Michael Strahan (former New York Giant and Pro Football Hall of Famer) will be with someone of equal athletic caliber to himself.

Good Morning America will be broadcast on ABC at 7:00 EST on Tuesday morning.

Wilson has been on GMA previously, and several 2021-2022 National Champions (including Coach Dawn Staley, Aliyah Boston, and Destanni Henderson) were on the show after defeating UConn for the title that season.
