Nick is a physical player who flashes speed and strength. Behind the plate, he presents a good target, footwork is agile, and he covers ground well. He can focus on staying in line with his throws and be more of a vocal leader behind the plate. Offensively, he displayed an aggressive approach with potential to have gap to gap power. His lower half gets through well and he has a direct quick bat. Nick can improve making sure he stays through the ball getting extension by using more top hand. Nick is a true gamer who shows a ton of potential as he enters high school next year.
