09/08/2018 - College PREP - Gambrills, MD Nicholas is a tall, athletic 1B who will graduate in 2021. At 1B, he displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Feet are active in working to square balls up but needs to attack more, playing through with his body. He moves well laterally with range improving as he increases foot quickness. Throws are accurate but needs to build more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, he shows a crouched setup. Hands are loose and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. Hitting grades will continue to improve as he works to get stride foot down sooner to be on time. With 3 years to further develop, Nicholas has abilities with time and room to progress his game.
