Uncommitted, 6-foot-1, 188-pound, athletic frame with advanced strength in his lower half. Worked out behind the plate and in the outfield. Possesses some of the softest, receptive hands from behind the plate, in the class. Highly-advanced receiver with clean, athletic actions and plays directional out of the crouch. Arm played over the top from the crouch and topped at 74 mph with a low pop time of 1.95. Caught our attention with his round of outfield defense. Active, quick feet, proper routes, got behind the baseball and looked natural despite being fairly new to the position. Played through the baseball athletically and showed off a quicker, stronger arm than he did behind the plate. From the outfield, his arm played quick and quick while his throws played with true four-seam carry, were consistently on the target and topped at 86 mph. At the plate, right-handed hitter has quick, strong hands and keeps the barrel flat and through the hitting zone a long time. Nevils was on the barrel with authority (65% sweet spot percentage) of his swings which was fourth-best of the event. Nevils averaged 82.7 mph off the bat and his furthest batted ball travelled 342 feet. One of the top uncommitted prospects in the Illinois’ 2023 class.

Even more than his gifted tools, Nevils’ ability to make adjustments throughout the weekend stood out. The young backstop has a proportionally, naturally strong frame that is likely to develop much more strength in the future. What started off the weekend as a load with some segmentation at the plate quickly morphed into a more fluid approach. When timed up, the hands worked back in sync with a leg kick, and there was noticeable bat speed through the zone on a flat path. The bat-to-ball skills are solid as he is aggressive while still being in control. Behind the plate, Nevils worked to block balls, and showcases advanced receiving abilities for his age. His quick footwork and transfer along with a strong throwing arm allowed him to cut down the running game, and impressed between innings. Overall, Nevils’ all around game is likely to bring many coaches/scouts to games over the next four years.
