07/29/2017 - Under Armour All-America Game, Powered by Baseball Factory
Nolan is one of the top hitters in the entire 2018 class with a hit and power combination that is extremely rare, but the most unique aspect of his offensive ability may be his aptitude to carry it into games. He hits when it counts! As an infielder Nolan shows good hands and outstanding, easy arm strength across the diamond. He profiles best at third base at the next level where his tools and instincts fit very well. Nolan was very impressive launching balls out of Wrigley Field to win the UA AA HR Derby, and is a legitimate run producing bat in the future. Committed to the University of Arizona.

Nolan participated in the batting practice workout at the UAPSAA event in Arizona, and it was a memorable session. He put on a show, driving balls with authority on a consistent basis. During his second round he had a stretch where he hit 5 balls high over the RF/RCF in 6 swings. His present strength and quick, efficient stroke result in lots of loud contact and make him one of the top hitters in the entire 2018 class. He should put on another impressive offensive display at Wrigley Field in the Under Armour All-America Game this summer.

Nolan is one of the most impressive hitters in the 2018 class. He combines present strength with quick hands, barrel accuracy and big pull-side power. He recognizes and waits on pitches well before attacking. Not only did Nolan put on an impressive batting practice display, but he went 2-3 with a walk in game action - and both hits came in tough left-on-left match-ups. His quiet, confident approach has no problem catching up to velocity or reacting to off-speed stuff. As a defender, Nolan takes good angles, moves his feet and is sure-handed at 3B. He has a clean exchange and uses his plus arm strength (91 mph arm strength) to complete plays. Overall Nolan is complete all-around player with an elite bat that should hit in the middle-of-the-order at higher levels.
