05/05/2019 - College PREP - Henrico (Richmond), VA Nicholas is a tall, solid, and athletic C/SS who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best, displaying well above average hitting / power potential through an open setup. Hands are quick (84 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Behind the plate, feet are active as he works in line through a quick transfer / exchange as he gets rid of the baseball quickly. Pop times show a range of 2.40-2.50 with accuracy on his throws. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. He sticks balls well in the zone, displaying soft glove but will benefit by squaring stance up. He utilizes his body well and creates good angles through the blocking process. At SS, he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active and aggressive as he attacks balls and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Nicholas has a lot of potential and will get looks from the collegiate coaches as he continues to progress his game.
