02/18/2013 - College PREP - Stillwater (Minneapolis), MN Nicole is an athletic 2B/OF from the 2014 class. As a 2B, she has soft, sure hands, active feet with agile range and is an accurate thrower. She has a good pre-pitch routine, presents her hands well and will benefit from playing low at the hips at all times while fielding further out front with fingers down. She communicates well, is good on both sides of the double play but should focus on keeping her feet active around the bag when waiting for flips/feeds. As an OF, she has a quick release, gets good reads off the bat and plays through ground balls well. She will experience better arm strength if she incorporates a solid power step/crow hop and follows throws aggressively with her feet. At the plate, Nicole uses a square set up with a back load, short stride and good balance to launch her short, aggressive swing. She has a solid bunt/slap game which allows her to consistently apply pressure to opposing defenses in different forms. She keeps her barrel direct when slapping, strong shoulders and good timing allow her to consistently handle the bat. Overall, Nicole is a good player whom can get better with proper instruction and attention to detail in her preparation, she has good instincts and the skill set to suggest that she could play 2B at the next level.
