Nicholas is a strong C prospect who showed well during the Under Armour All-America Pre-Season Tournament. Behind the plate, Nicholas sits in a low stance and tracks the ball into his glove well. He replaces his feet and makes a clean exchange to throw, keeping his throws accurate through the 2B bag. At the plate, this RHH sets up in an open stance and takes a square stride. He is fluid getting his hands activated in his load and drives through well with his lower half. He takes a level swing with explosive bat speed, leading to loud contact and great pull side pop. Overall, Nicholas is a talented prospect who has the skill set to contribute at the next level.

Nicholas is an athletic and talented 2021 catching prospect. Behind the dish, Nicholas starts in a balanced primary and a slightly staggered secondary stance. When receiving, Nicholas presents a low target, works behind the ball, and sticks it. When blocking, he leads with his glove and works over the ball. When throwing, he has a clean exchange, creates movement with his lower half, and has a quick release. At the plate, Nicholas starts in a squared stance, has good rhythm pre-pitch, and stays balanced through contact. He has fast hands, attacks the inside part of the ball, and shows gap to gap power. Nicholas will continue to improve with experience and we hope to see his progress in the future.
