I really like this pick as well. This dude has some serious tools, and an incredible frame. The damage he and Smith will do in the same leagues for the next few years could be scary.

Fwiw, Grambling is a local school for this kid. Ruston is the location of Louisiana Tech and Grambling is close enough that a student could commute from Ruston in a very short drive (about 5 miles).

Given his talent and lateness of commitment, I'd bet it was done for some semblance of negotiating leverage.

This is a great third round pick when you have two of them...

He would have been a nice pairing with Austin.

I think the mets saved some money with a lot of these picks... hopefully we can overslot 4 picks later on

If they saved money with the players they picked, then the Mets handled this well.

"I wasn’t going to be No. 1, but I knew I was going to go," Wilson said, before confirming that he planned to sign with the Mets sooner rather than later.

“I'm pretty sure I'm going to sign," he said. "Yes, I am. It won't take long."

Wilson is a five-tool center fielder who has the arm to play right field if required. He hit .383 in his senior season with eight homers and eight triples. More than half of his 41 hits were for extra bases. He also swiped 12 bases.

Get it rolling baby. I think this is going to be my second favorite pick in this year's draft.
