One of the day’s most impressive ‘pens came from RHP Jack Wilson (New Trier, 2024). The 5-foot-10, 160-pound sophomore worked with a quick aura to him on the mound, featuring an athletic delivery and fluid lower half movement patterns downhill. Wilson’s fastball entered the upper quadrant of the zone with late life at 81-82 mph. Wilson’s most enticing trait was his aptitude to spin his breaking balls - a curveball and slider mix that both played in the 68-70 mph range with sharp, late action off an 11/5 plane. The separator here was his ability to land them for strikes and bury them beneath the zone as well, enhancing his arsenal as a whole overall. He’s landed himself on our follow radar as his sophomore season at New Trier is set to begin in a few weeks.
