One of the many talented prep righthanders out of Georgia this year, Wilcox is a projectable, 6-foot-5 Georgia commit who has a solid low to mid-90s fastball with natural running action and a slider that could develop into a plus offering. He also possess a low to mid-80s changeup that could be an above-average pitch in the future. Wilcox has impressive makeup and throws a ton of strikes, leading some scouts to believe that he could turn into a middle-of-the-rotation starter someday with three above-average pitches. The concern with Wilcox is in regards to his delivery. He throws from a low, three-quarter arm slot with some funk and recoil in his finish and a deep arm action in the back, which raises his chances of eventually having to slide to the bullpen. The stuff has been good though, and Wilcox's slider has even been a tick sharper this spring. He has a lot of projection left to offer as well, with an ideal pitcher's frame at 6-foot-5, 220 pounds. He should be an attractive arm for a team who believes they can clean up the delivery and continue to develop him as a starter.
