Nick is an very talented OF who has the total package. He takes a quick 1st step which allows him to get into position and work behind the baseball. A clean exchange and long/fluid arm-action with a strong arm result in throws with carry into his targets chest. Offensively, Nick is a free swinger and takes a hack. He remains balanced throughout his swing and finishes well, creating extension through contact. An exciting OF who has the tools that will translate at the next level.

Hands are quick, generating plus bat speed to and through the baseball, creating extension. He shows a feel for the barrel with the baseball jumping off the bat when centered. Mental makeup is a plus as he is a hard worker with a ton of potential that will get looks from the collegiate coaches with his baseball abilities.
