USA CNT: Wilson put together an eye-opening sophomore campaign with Grand Canyon, slashing .358/.418/.585 while striking out just 7 times in 275 plate appearances. He brought his aggressive approach and barrel control to play at trials, outhitting the next best would-be USA CNT member by over 100 points, slashing .467/.556/1.000 and leading the other 24 position players in nearly every offensive category (AVG, H, 2B, HR, RBI, TB, SLG and OBP). Wilson utilizes a simple load and well-above-average bat speed to attack pitches and stays balanced in the body and quiet in the head throughout his impactful cuts. The result is a compact swing with an ability to do damage across the zone while utilizing the whole field. Wilson's aggressive approach limits his free passes, but the quality of his contact is high enough to offset that nit, and though he lacks top tier over-the-fence pop, he should hit his share of dingers to go with loads of doubles. His impressive footwork and solid arm strength could fit across the dirt, though he may lack the lateral range to slot in as a full-time shortstop at the pro ranks. Wilson capped his impressive spring/summer campaign with a very strong showing overseas, slashing .364/.462/.455 at the Honkbalweek Haarlem tourney, while presenting well defensively with clean play at both third base and second. It's a first round profile at this point in the draft cycle and, like Gonzalez, could fit in the top ten picks with another strong season next spring.

Wilson showed well for himself putting together some really good at-bats despite not having anything to show for them in the hit column. At 6-foot-1, 175-pounds, his frame is long and lean with wiry strength throughout particularly through the arms down into the hands. Shows a high aptitude on defense where he is currently playing second base. Profiles well at third base in the future where his size and developing power would fit nicely. Presently shows range to both and enough arm strength to make accurate throws from any angle. At the plate he has a pronounced bat waggle that he uses to trigger his swing. Starts upright with hands above shoulder and uses a medium stride before firing back hip into the ball. Shows quick-to-fast hands that maintain the barrel on a consistent plane throughout the hitting zone. Drops hands into launch position upon front foot landing. At times overstrides and has weight on the front resulting in weak contact. Shows a penchant for fighting off pitches and extending at-bats. Keeps hands close to body before extending through contact with the knob leading the barrel to a balanced, high hand finish. The son of former MLB play Jack Wilson, there’s plenty of physical projection remaining with the younger Wilson who has a solid foundation of tools to build upon.
