NEW LONDON - So what can Peyton Wilson bring to a college baseball program?

“Competitiveness, strong will and hard work,” explained Wilson.

Those traits will be taken to Bowling Green after the New London junior’s recent commitment to the Mid-American Conference school.

“I really liked my visit there,” Wilson said of BG. “My parents wanted me to make sure I liked the school before baseball and I do. I liked the campus and I liked the culture there and the way baseball is shaping up.”

The 56th-rated junior in Ohio began talking with Bowling Green coaches in the winter. Visits to Tiffin and Kent State took place in addition to BG during his recruiting process.

“They like how I compete and don’t give in,” explained Wilson, a hard-throwing right-hander who has topped out at 87 on the gun. “They like how I don’t get razzled with people on base.”

The 6-1 205-pounder has made recent strides to help his game.

“Lifting has been a big part of it,” Wilson said of his improvement. “I’m a lot stronger which will help me fit more into a starting role.”

Wilson also credits Adrian Abrahamowicz of the Warhawks with playing a key part of bettering his pitching.

“Adrian helped fix my mechanics,” Wilson pointed out. “I’m a lot smoother now. The ball comes out a lot better.”

But there is more Wilson looks to do in getting better.

“Pitch ability is an area I can improve,” Wilson said. “Executing pitches when I need to rather than trying to blow it by them is something I need to work on. My offspeed is also a work in progress. I need to work on hitting my spots more consistently.”

The idea of playing baseball at the next level has been there for some time according to Wilson, the seventh-ranked uncommitted 2020 right-handed pitcher in the state at the time of his verbal.
