COACHES COMMENTS:

Nathan is an OF/RHP/1B from Pope HS that will graduate in 2020. A strong athlete, Nathan plays both corners. His arm is strong and accurate, and is a legit weapon on the defensive side of the baseball. He covers the gaps with good range and has an efficient first step. At the plate, Nathan is a top of the order threat by utilizing solid speed with his ability to make consistent contact. He can drive the ball into the gaps and can give opponents fits on the bases. On the mound, Nathan has a solid fastball that he locates well, and backs that up with a true 12-6 curveball. The curve is a plus pitch that generates many swings and misses. His change-up is a very good pitch and will make him effective against better hitters. Nathan is a very good athlete that will have college recruiters following him closely.

Nate has committed to play college baseball at the University of South Carolina Upstate in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
