07/29/2013 - Under Armour Southwest Championships, powered by Baseball Factory's Team One Nicholas is a solid 3B that will graduate in 2014. Foot speed is slightly above average as indicated by his 7.40 60 time. Defensive grades are outstanding as he uses his athletic feet well in attacking ground balls and plays through well, while presenting his soft / sure hands well out front. He works to get rid of the baseball quickly with accuracy and carry across the diamond, displaying outstanding arm strength. At the plate, he shows a balanced setup with rhythm. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. Barrel accuracy is a plus with baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Mental makeup is a plus as he is a hard worker and is very coachable. Nicholas has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
