Top-10 Profiles of 2020: No. 4 Nick Arias


Joe Dattoli
West Coast Director of Operations

Nick Arias comes in at No. 4 on the Top-10 Most Viewed Profiles of 2020 countdown! The top ranked SS in Arizona and within the Top 100 nationally recently hit 91 mph across the diamond to cement himself atop the state IF Velo leaderboards. His nice smooth swing should play well in the future with added size and strength. He has the tools to grow into a real difference maker at the next level for Grand Canyon University (Committed). Be sure to check out his interview with State Scouting Director, Brett Thorney, about his commitment to GCU and other topics here.

Scouting Report

1/26/20

 

5-foot-11 165-pounds, looked noticeably stronger than last time we saw him with lean strength & definition throughout his frame. Hits from an athletic slightly spread out base. Uses a leg lift gathering weight into his back hip. Stays in control of his load, letting his body work into footstrike. Rhythm in his hands getting to a solid launch position. Gap to gap approach with flat path through the zone. Extension to swing, reaching at times. Above average pull contact at 88mph exit velocity. Hits some hard LD’s to pull side in our games for hits. Looked the part at shortstop. Showcased a strong arm across the diamond at 88mph with sure hands. Plays more athletically than 7.47 60-yard dash time would suggest. Should be followed closely.
