Wilson has been a standout quarterback for the Wolfpack for two seasons, but he's a redshirt sophomore and eligible for the baseball draft, so many observers thought he might end his football career early. He skipped spring football to focus on baseball this year but didn't do enough for teams to buy him out of his football career yet. Wilson turned down six figures coming out of high school and has some hitting ability, but he batted .306/.438/.490 in just 98 at-bats this spring and didn't show enough defensive ability at second base to wow scouts. His arm played a bit on the mound as well, as he pitched 12 innings. Scouts will be content to check in again next year after his third season on the gridiron.
