12/16/2018 - College PREP - Madison (NYC), NJ Nic is a solid, strong catcher who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is solid as indicated by his 60 time of 7.20. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line to his target through a clean transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times showed a range of 2.18-2.25 with accuracy / carry on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Hands are soft / sure and he tracks balls well through the receiving process. He uses his body well through the blocking process and moves well laterally, centering all balls out front and is a wall behind the plate. At the plate, he continues to shine, displaying outstanding hitting / power potential through an athletic setup. Hands are quick (86 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He has strength in his swing and stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields with gap-to-gap pop. With 2 years to further develop, Nic has the makings of a special type player and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
