Breaking down Top 100 2018 center and Oregon State commit Jack Wilson

Oregon State landed a 2018 center with upside in Jack Wilson. Scout breaks down Scout's 91st ranked prospect in the class.

Jack Wilson committed to Oregon State on Saturday, starting the Beavers' 2018 class off with a Top 100 commitment.

The four-star prospect is ranked 91st nationally in 2018 and he's currently the top center prospect on the West Coast in the class.

In what is currently a very light class of centers regionally in terms of Pac-12 prospects, Oregon State being able to nab a player who could have ended up pretty highly recruited was a savvy move by Wayne Tinkle and company.

What kind of player is Oregon State getting in Wilson?

Wilson is a huge kid who is going to be a big, strong, nimble center in time. He's got very light feet for his size and the physical tools to be a successful high major player with continued development.


While Wilson is still developing as a back to the basket guy, he's got decent footwork, soft hands and can hit hook shots with both hands. He's not yet an efficient finisher posting up but he's about as far along as a young center his size should be. He's also a capable midrange shooter.

Wilson isn't necessarily an above the rim guy, but he's very mobile considering his size. He plays very hard and rebounds his area well.

Given Wilson's size, soft hands, feet, promise offensively and mobility, he has the upside to be a successful player in the Pac-12.

The Oregon State commit has solid bloodlines as his father, Greg Wilson, played basketball at Chaminade University and sister, Elise Wilson, was on the crew team at UCLA.
