02/19/2018 - College PREP - Brentwood (Long Island), NY Nicholas is a young, strong, catcher with good overall skills. Behind the plate, Nicholas has a square set-up, active feet, and he uses his chest well to block. He presents his glove well, has a clean exchange, and throws with a short/accurate arm to his target. Defense can get better with a wider base, lower set-up, and more flexibility. At the plate, Nicholas has a square/crouched set-up, a proper load, and a strong hitting base. He has good weight transfer, decent bat speed, and some pop in his bat to the pull side. Hitting grades can get better if Nicholas can loosen his grip, work on timing, and sharpen barrel accuracy.
