Carter continues to show consistency in his game. This strong/solidly built 2-way player showed as a C/1B. Behind the dish, pop times remain in the low 2's as he gains ground and works in-line toward 2B. At 1B, he works around the ground ball and fields it cleanly. He displayed the ability to handle bad throws, picking the ball out of the dirt with ease. At the plate, Nott shows good rhythm, getting back into a strong loaded position. He uses his frame and drive his lower 1/2 and hit the ball on a line. Carter is a hard worker who will make things happen on the diamond.

07/24/2013 - California Select Training & Competition (Ages 14-18)
Carter is a solid C/RHP that will graduate in 2015. Feet are quick, athletic as he works in line and gains ground through a clean transfer / exchange. Pop times show a range of 2.12-2.25 with accuracy on his throws. He shows a solid setup and plays with a lot of energy as he displays plus receiving and blocking skills that will play well at the next level. At the plate, Nott shows an athletic setup and competes well. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed and through a level swing path. Barrel accuracy is a plus with baseball jumping off his bat when centered, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to keep hands inside the ball to utilize to all fields. On the mound, he only showed a fastball with a range of 77-78 mph on a downhill plane. Mental makeup is a plus as he is a hard worker and is very coachable. With 2 years to further develop, Carter has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
