2016 Stohs Prospect Handbook Profile: Wade went to St. Paul’s High School in Owings Mills, Maryland. He was a four-year letterman in baseball and football and was the #1 recruit in Maryland by some sources. He stayed at home and went to the University of Maryland. The centerfielder actually played first base his first two seasons. He moved back to centerfield his junior season, but he missed 25 games with a broken hamate bone. He hit .335/.453/.468 (.921). He is an athletic outfielder who likely would have been drafted higher than the ninth round if not for the injury. He knows the strike zone and is willing to take a walk.
