    Wilson's body and physical skills get scouts excited. He moves easily for a 6-foot-3, 220-pounder, having played wide receiver for his high school team and turning in a 6.7-second 60-yard time at the East Coast Pro Showcase last summer. He has gotten plenty of exposure in national events such as MLB's Breakthrough Series and the Under Armour All-America game. Wilson also has big raw power that shows up most in batting practice. Scouts see a sound swing and set-up in the batter's box, as well as present strength, so they haven't figured out why his power doesn't play in games. His athleticism and solid-average arm help him profile as a potential right fielder. Wilson did not have a college commitment, but scouts said they still were having a hard time getting a read on his signability.
