08/24/2013 - Under Armour All-America Game, powered by Baseball Factory If there is a better baseball player in the country than Nick, I haven't seen him. He is able to use his hitting and fielding tools at an amazingly high level, such that the game appears to come very easily to him. I can't think of a better quality for an everyday player than that, and it's the only reason I need to like him better here than on the mound. He didn't pitch in Chicago, but I've seen him before up to 91 with a quality downer breaking ball. The bloodlines are there, but he is just too good of a player for me to pass on having him in the lineup everyday in the middle of the field. For easily the best position player line of the game, he collected three hits in four at bats, drove in two runs, stole a base and scored a run.

05/24/2013 - 2013 Under Armour Memorial Day Classic 18U Participant Lean, wiry build. Extremely talented two way player. Excellent runner. Loose left handed stroke, balanced approach with rhythm to hit and hand-eye coordination. Athletic delivery, arm worked free and clean from the glove and out front. FB sat 90-91, easy from hand. Breaking ball had 11-5 shape with depth. Strike thrower, aggressive to zone. Worked quick.

09/22/2012 - 2012 Team One Futures Series East Nicholas is a lean, lanky RHP that will graduate in 2014 and shows pro abilities on the mound. Delivery is outstanding, displaying repeatable / sound mechanics that allows his arm action to work quickly and freely to the plate. He hides the ball well through a strong balance point. Arm strength is at a pro level as he topped out at 90 mph. Fastball shows a range of 88-90 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball is a hammer, displaying 11/5 shape with sharp breaking action with late depth. Pitch will get outs at all levels. Command / control are tremendous as he throws strikes with all his pitches and attacks hitters, changing speeds well. With 2 years to further develop, Gordon has the makings to be a top 2014 draft guy.

Tool Grade Scale

Our main goals with the BF "10-70" Scouting Scale are to provide the player with a realistic evaluation of his "PRESENT" abilities (what he can do today), and to provide college coaches with information they can use to identify and/or compare potential recruits.

Tools are graded for all players and pitchers, regardless of age or graduation year. However, for High School players we use only grades 20-70 (grades 10-18 do not apply), while for Middle School players we use only grades 10-52 (grades 55-70 do not apply).
