Official Scouting Report

  • Class Rating
  • SS/RHPPosition Projection

01/12/2024 - 2024 Baseball Factory Pre-Season All-America Tournament Nicholas is a 2026 SS/RHP who showcased his talents in front of scouts at the BF Pre-Season All-America Tournament. In the field, he has good footwork and covers ground laterally. He fields from a low position and has soft hands. Nicholas threw from multiple arm slots and looked comfortable around the bag showing good footwork on double plays. At the plate, the right-handed hitter has an open stance and good rhythm. He has a strong lower and good bat speed. His swing path stays on plane and he made consistent contact. Nicholas had a good approach at the plate using all fields. On the mound, he showed a 3-pitch mix. He had fastball that topped at 74 mph and a slider that had late 9-3 break. His change-up was very effective with fastball arm speed. He was quick to the plate and had athletic actions on the mound. He also does a great job hiding the ball which made it tough for hitters to pick up. We foresee that Nicholas will continue grow and mature both at the plate and on the mound in years to come.

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).
