08/17/2014 - College PREP - Kapolei (Honolulu), HI Nicholas is a lean, athletic OF that will graduate in 2015. Defensive grade are solid as he displays clean / smooth actions. He utilizes his active feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls as he reads balls well off the bat and covers a lot of ground. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he works to get behind balls and play through with momentum to his target. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a squared / balanced setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. Hitting grade will continue to improve as he works to stay inside the ball, utilizing all fields. He shows a feel for the barrel with baseball jumping off the bat when centered with power numbers improving as he learns to use his lower half more. Nicholas has abilities with a lot of room to improve.
