11/12/2017 - College PREP - Davie, FL Nicholas is a long, lean (6'2”, 175lbs) two-way player who uses his frame as an advantage at both positions. He can dot on the mound, showing command to both sides of the plate with all of his pitches. He gets a good push from his lower half and shows a loose, clean arm stroke to get to a consistent release point and jump at the hitter. He features a fastball ay 80mph with cut action, an 11-5 curveball with depth and a sweeping slider at 73mph. At third, he has efficient footwork to surround the ball and field with presented hands in the center of his body. He shows a strong arm and makes accurate feeds and throws across the diamond. At the plate, he is balanced in his setup with a strong lower half that generates bat speed and pop. He tracks the ball well and shows good barrel accuracy to hit the ball square and hard to the pull side. Clearing his front side will allow him to work on a more direct path to the ball. Nicholas is an intriguing prospect with lots of potential on the field.
