Wilson was named man of the match in Pompey's thumping of UEFA Cup opponents Heerenveen and Adams revealed: "His attitude was very good - and he's not even a right back.
"But he now needs to specialise. I see him as a centre back and I think he can now go on do that at Premier League level. He's two footed, he can head the ball and he's strong."
"He's not better than them yet, but I think he's got a good chance.
"But he now needs to be playing first team football week after week so I think I am going to have to loan him out to a good Championship side so that he can get the experience he needs."
