Nick Franklin is a 2009 SS/UT/P with a 6'1'', 170 lb. frame from Longwood, FL who attends Lake Brantley. Nick has a lean, athletic build and shows good actions in the infield. His hands work well, fluid movements, quick release and an easy plus arm. He is a switch hitter at the plate and is good from both side. He is short to the ball and makes hard line drive contact. He has gap to gap power and uses all fields. He has very good speed (6.6 60) and uses it well being aggressive on the bases. Nick can also get on the mound an pitch in the upper 80's and we have seen him at 90+ before using varying arm angle. Nick is a top 2009 prospect with serious tools and also a good student.
