Nicely is an athletic lefty with a solid, projectable frame at 6-foot-2, 175 pounds. He has sound mechanics for a high school pitcher, and the ball comes out of his hand easily. He pitches with average velocity now and figures to add more down the road. He has shown ability to spin a breaking ball. He's not advanced enough right now to take him higher than the 10th round, which won't be nearly enough to lure him away from his commitment to Virginia.
