Steffan Wilson is a third baseman for the Harvard Crimson. As a freshman for Harvard in 2005 he proved anything but a freshman by winning Ivy League Rookie of the Year and was also first-team all-Ivy League at third and second-team all-Ivy League as a reliever. While Wilson closed for the Crimson the past two seasons his future in baseball is somewhere else on the diamond. He's committed a total of 25 errors in two seasons at the hot corner and will likely see a shift to another position.

As a freshman he hit .340, drove in 34 runs, hit six doubles and five triples and home runs. He walked 21 times and struck out only 26 times in 159 ABs. He also stole ten bases. His sophomore season saw a slight improvement in fielding (11 errors, down from 14) and he developed a bit more extra-base hit power. His doubles increased to 17 and his home run total went up by one to six.

Wilson struggled this past summer in the Cape Cod League for the Wareham Gatemen. He was tied for the team lead in RBI with Texas' Bradley Suttle but his stats are a bit of a letdown for a player of his caliber. During the Cape Cod League Homerun Derby, Wilson hit a total of 17 homers and the writer of this article believes Wilson might sign based on comments from his Wareham coach.
