Micahel Wilson, of
Booker T. Washington HS, Tulsa


The top three outfield prospects in the draft all have football connections. South Carolina high schooler Roscoe Crosby is a Clemson recruit as a wide receiver, Auburn's Gabe Gross quarterbacked the Tigers as a freshman, and Wilson has a scholarship to play linebacker at Oklahoma. He's a 6-foot-2, 215-pound athlete loaded with raw ability. He runs the 60-yard dash in 6.6-6.7 seconds, has power to go with his speed and plays a fine center field. He even was clocked throwing 90 mph–as a sophomore. Though he's a bit stiff, Wilson made the U.S. junior national team last summer. Team USA officials persuaded him to bat solely righthanded, though he's switch-hitting again this spring. His future lies in baseball, and he's expected to turn pro as a supplemental first-rounder.
