01/17/2014 - Under Armour Pre-Season All-America Tournament Nic is a solid player and target to throw to at a strong, muscular 6'3, 245 lbs. He provides an easy target to throw to at first and has good body control around the bag. He has a live arm and a clean exchange, beneficial when turning double plays. Nic does tend to field the ball too deep in his stance, and would benefit from fielding the ball out front more. Also, being lighter on his feet and shortening his arm action will help improve defensive grades. At the plate is where Nic truly shines. Has great balance and rhythm, takes a direct bat path to the ball, and excellent bat speed. This bat speed helps his bat whip into the strike zone, causing the ball to explode off of his barrel with great backspin and distance. Nic can improve at the plate by being more steady in his pre-pitch movement with his bat, which is busy at times with a lot of movement. Also, not standing narrow at the plate will help improve already impressive offensive abilities. Overall, Nic is an excellent player that will definitely catch the eyes of college coaches.
