07/21/2019 - College PREP - Fargo, ND Nicholas is a strong, athletic LHP/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. In the OF, defensive abilities are well above average as he utilizes his feet well in taking proper routes / angles in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls and plays through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. At the plate he shows a squared, athletic setup. Hands are quick and work to and through a short / direct / level swing path. He makes consistent hard contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. On the mound, he gathers over the rubber and separates his hands on time. He shows a three pitch mix with his fastball topping out at 70 mph. Breaking ball sits from 53-58 mph with 2/8 shape with gradual break. He can improve as a pitcher by long tossing to build up his arm strength. With 2 years to further develop, Nicholas has potential with time and room to progress his game.
