Profile: Drafted in the 17th round of the 2016 draft out of Clemson University, the Brewers signed Wilson for $80,000 and sent him to Helena to begin his pro career in the Pioneer League. After playing third base during his first two seasons at Clemson, Wilson moved to second base in 2016 and has seen most of his action at those two positions with the Brewers as well. At 6’3″, Wilson is better suited for third base in the pros and he handled the position well in his first year, making just four errors in 107 chances at the hot corner. He has better than average power and showed an ability to put the bat on the ball during his time with Helena.

2016: Upon his signing with the Brewers, Wilson made his way to their rookie league club in Helena where he saw action in 62 games. He bounced all over the diamond, playing first, second and third base, as well as a few innings in the outfield, but saw the bulk of his playing time at third. He hit .318, collecting 16 doubles, seven triples and four home runs while driving in 38 runs and also scoring 38.
