  • 1BPosition Projection

11/09/2019 - College PREP - Fremont (San Jose), CA Nick is a tall 1B prospect who will graduate in 2021. In the field, Nick shows proper footwork and centers the ball in the middle of his body. He fields with a firm glove and makes a clean exchange. He gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them consistently on-line to his target. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He is smooth getting into his load and hits against a strong front side. He takes a short swing with explosive bat speed, leading to loud contact to all fields. Overall, Nick is a talented prospect who has the potential to contribute at the next level.

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).
