07/10/2017 - Interactive Video Program - Trenton, NJ Nicholas is a lean, SS/OF who will graduate in 2022. Defensively at SS, he moves athletically from right to left and fields GB's with soft hands. He has a clean exchange and makes accurate throws to his target. In the OF, he takes active routes as he works behind the fly ball. He plays through the ball and fires throws with loose arm action accurately to his cut-off man. With the stick, Nicholas displays smooth rhythm to a load. He stays balanced through contact as he sprays pitches to all parts of the field. Overall abilities in his game will improve with work on the following.
