Jacob showed consistency from his last outing, in his most recent Baseball Factory event. Defensively, he showed a good idea of playability and was sure handed. He flashed smooth actions and was accurate to throw. Becoming more consistent with his fluidity will enable greater fielding ability and higher level play. Offensively, he showed good balance and bat speed, while also displaying a sound oppo approach. In all - Wilson is a promising young player that has shown a lot of ability in his actions - now he needs to focus to repeat on a regular basis.

Jacob is a young, 2nd baseman with good knowledge of the game. In the INF, Jacob has good quickness, nice body control, and eh gets in a good ready position. He fields smoothly, funnels well, and he throws with a quick release to his target. Defense can get better if Jacob can avoid rushing, and not drop his elbow when throwing. At the plate, Jacob has an open stance, an activated load, and good balance. He stays through the ball well, has good barrel accuracy, and he keeps a still head. If Jacob can improve his load, add bat speed, and improve his timing, offensive numbers will spike.
