Wilson projects as a possible sixth- to 10th-round pick, and he was at his best in a regional, beating Long Beach State. His fastball has average velocity, peaking at 93 mph, and exceptional life, so much so that he struggles to command the pitch. When he throws strikes with his heater and big-breaking curveball, he's tough to beat. He added a short, sharp slider late in the season that he commands better than the curve, and it made a difference.
