The stance is wide, sits on the flats of his feet. The hands are loose when receiving, could stick the pitch a bit more. The transfer is clean, glove gets across his chest, feet work well, gains ground on footwork. The arm action is short, throws from a high ¾ slot, has a small waggle on the backside, arm was clocked at 74 mph, with a pop time of 2.01-2.19, in game throw was 2.18. Throws were on the proper side of bag, baseball has a slight fade to it at times. Offensively, hits from the right side, the stance is spread out, hands are held even at shoulder height. The hands have separation from the body, stride leg, has a small leg kick, gains distance with it. The swing is flat through the zone, level to up, finishes high with one hand.

6-foot, 190- pounds, strong durable catchers frame, is well proportioned athlete, frame has room to fill out, frame should be physical down the road. Nicol is athletic behind the plate, still honing the nuances of catching, but has the right build to stick. The footwork and mechanics are continually improving. Put up a 1.93 pop time showing the arm is real and the rest of the package needs repetition to become more consistent. The arm was clocked at 73 mph, has a slight waggle on the backside. He has the requisite athleticism to move off the position if needed and could profile at third or possible a corner outfield slot. Has a smooth swing from the right hand side, short step into the swing, wrists letter high and rip through the zone into one handed finish. Above average high school bat speed, with a tee exit velocity of 85 mph. Generates loft and shows good game power already, this will only grow as he matures physically. The batting practice was good took two solid rounds, and in games swings were good. Nicol could make major jumps in his class in the coming seasons. Invited and is attending the Future Games in August.

Home - First: 4.65

Exit Velocity: 85mph

Arm Velocity: 73 mph

6-foot, 178-pound, strong, physical athletic frame, the shoulders and back are wide. Currently ranked 47th in the class of 2017, has accepted his invitation to play in the Future Games next summer. Is one of the better catchers in the area, is collecting interest from the division one level. A right-handed hitter, the stance is wider than shoulder width, feet are even and hands are held just above his back shoulder with the bat starting in a flat position. The lower half is under control, has a small stride for timing, picks foot up and straight back down. The backside could get involved a little more at times. The swing is level to up, creates lift, length and leverage in his swing, has gap power at the moment, look for the power to continue. The tee exit velocity was 85 mph and ran 4.78, as he continues to get stronger time should drop. In game swings were good, collected a ringing single over the shortstop's head. Defensively, has some arm strength from the chute, clocked at 73 mph, with more in there, arm path is short and clean for the most part, tries to air it out, gets a little longer. The setup is balanced, needs to continue to work on the receiving side and staying strong with glove hand. Pop times of 1.93-2.07, around the bag on throws. Pitched as well, fastball was 73-76 mph, works out of a high ¾ slot. The breaking ball was clocked at 64-66 mph. The lower half could be involved more. Projects for me way more as a catcher. Will be a guy to follow closely throughout spring and summer, could be off the board quick.

6-foot, 168-pound, strong athletic frame, well proportioned athlete, hands and forearms are strong, neck is long and shoulders are squared, will be put together well. One of the better catchers in the area for his class. A right-handed hitter, the stance is slightly open, wider than shoulder width, hands are held above the back shoulder, in a good hitting position, gets out on the front foot at times, could stay back a little longer. The swing is flat through the zone, finishes with two hands and creates good backspin. The tee exit velocity was 83 mph, and ran ok for a catcher at 4.6 from home to first. In game swings were good, collected a triple and showed to be powerful. Defensively, the stance is closer together is flexible and relaxed. Transfers with two hands, needs to learn to get glove to hand. The feet and hands work well, gains ground with feet, are in line to target. The arm action is short and clean, was clocked at 75 mph, strength is above average for his age, pop times were 2.03-2.09. Size and strength is a big tool, has been invited to next year's Future Games. Big time prospect.
