Law:

Wilson is all kinds of raw right now, but for a team that likes to draft athletic kids and try to teach them how to play baseball, he's got enough ceiling (above-average regular) to be appealing in the third round or so. Wilson is strong and well-built at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds with good bat speed but a deep load that bars his lead arm and creates excessive length, meaning he can't always get to the potentially plus power from his wrist strength and big hip rotation. His swing path is also very inconsistent, and like many kids from very rural high schools he doesn't recognize offspeed stuff well yet. He's an average runner, a little slow out of the box and better underway, with plenty of arm for right field.

Wilson reminds me a lot of Jamie Jarmon, a very crude prep outfielder from Delaware whom I rated as a third-rounder last year and was drafted in the second round by Texas, after which he struggled to make contact in his first summer in pro ball. Jarmon's a long-term project, as is Wilson, and if Jarmon could go 83rd overall in a stronger draft, Wilson should go in that area as well.

One scout's writeup:

OF, Ivan Wilson, Ruston HS, La, 6'3 220, R/R, very strong, physical specimen, throws ave when sets up to throw to bases, has good hand speed and strength in his swing, bat goes to the ball, runs very well once underway, 4.27 out of the box from RH side, tracked the ball well in the OF, best suited for either corner, projects to hit for HR power, Some Joe Carter comparisons for me. 4-7 round type follow for 2013. Showed much better confidence then he did during the Breakthrough Series in Durham.

Solid pick. Very raw but upside, a lottery ticket.

Wilson's combination of tools and athleticism is among the best of this year's prep outfielders. He is listed at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds with good strength and plus speed. Wilson, out of Ruston H.S. (La.), has good power and can hit home runs to any part of the ballpark. He takes advantage of his power-speed combination thanks to good instincts on the basepaths. Wilson has excellent range in the outfield and enough arm for right field if he can't stay in center field. By mid-May, he still hadn't committed to college, leaving scouts wondering about his signability.

Like it a lot. Pre draft "sleeper" hype. Boom or bust
