Wilson got off to a strong start this spring, doubling twice at the Southern California Invitational in Compton in February, and he continued to show five-tool potential throughout the spring. Wilson is a classic high-risk, high-reward prospect, because his baseball instincts and fundamentals remain raw. His best tool is his plus speed, but it doesn't always play on the basepaths, where he is aggressive but not always at the right times. Some scouts say they have seen plus arm strength from Wilson as well, but others call it average. He has improved in center field, where he has a chance to be a good defender in time. Wilson could grow into fringy to average power as he fills out his wiry 6-foot-3 frame, because he has intriguing bat speed from the right side. His long arms enable him to get to balls out of the zone and drive them to the gaps. He'll need to improve his plate discipline and become more consistent with his stride, but he has a chance to hit for average down the line as well. Wilson is committed to Arizona State.
