Eric Nicholson is a 2006 right handed pitcher from Spring, TX with a tall lanky build at 6-2, 175 lbs. He has long arms and legs and he pitches with a tall and fall style delivery. He has a clean and easy delivery with a loose arm action. His fastball topped out at 82 mph with late armside run. His curveball has a tight 11-5 break at 67 mph with good deception and depth. He did not show a change. He has good command of both pitches and hit his spots well. He is a solid pitcher with lots of upside and he is a definite follow. Eric is a very good student.

Eric Nicholson is a slender 6'2" right handed pitcher in the 2006 class from Spring, Texas. He especially has room to add strength in his hips and lower half. Nicholson has a full, loose arm circle and his arm works well. Nicholson has some back lean in his delivery that throws his balance off, then falls off pretty severely out front. His fastball was 78-79 mph and both the velocity of the pitch and Nicholson’s command were affected by his balance and directional problems. Nicholson’s arm speed and looseness indicate that he could be throwing a couple of mph’s harder right now, and he’s still projectable. Nicholson’s curveball was 66-68 mph and had pretty good spin and bite. He has plenty of room to improve both mechanically and with his strength, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see him throwing in the mid 80s in another year.
