11/01/2020 - Official College Recruiting Membership - Salem (Roanoke), VA Nate is an athletic C/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the dish, he presents a soft/sure mitt showing great pocket awareness sticking pitches. He uses his body through the blocking process, centering balls well out front. Receiving / blocking skills show as quality tools that will play well at the next level. Pop times showed in 2.15 range with accuracy / carry (81 mph velocity) on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss. In the OF, he displays smooth / fluid actions. He takes proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. Feet are active and works to get behind ball, playing through with momentum to his target. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally (7.11 60 time) and covers ground. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying outstanding hitting / power potential through a squared setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He has strength in his swing and shows a feel for the barrel with power showing best to the pull side. With 2 years to further develop, Nate has the makings of a special type player and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
