09/27/2015 - College PREP - Bowie, MD Dawaun is a (6'3"/310) R/R 1B. Defensively, he hustles and works hard into a square fielding position behind the GB. He makes the plays, gathers well and gives good DP feeds. Working into a lower fielding position while fielding the ball more out in front will help to improve his skills at 1B. Offensively, Nickens has a tall setup with patience. Quick hands whip the barrel on pitches he likes. The ball jumps off when centered as he has some pull-side pop. Utilizing his frame and strong lower 1/2 more throughout the swing will result in even more untapped power. A 2017 grad - Dawaun still has time to work on and develop his skills on the diamond.
