Nick Nordgren is a JC OF/LHP/1B with a 6'4'', 180 lb. frame from Norway IA, who attends Indian Hills CC. He has a very projectable, lean build, even at 20 years old, and hasn't started getting strong yet. We've seen Nordgren play for years and his tools are coming together very well. He has a long, lean body that's just starting to fill out and get strong. Nordgren's run and throw tools are Major League level. He's a 6.50 runner with long, graceful strides that cover huge amounts of ground in the outfield and has a plus arm (91 mph in drills) to go with it. Nordgren's defensive fundamentals and balance are solid and he makes accurate, on-line throws. Offensively, Nordgren is a switch-hitter who only batted right handed at this event. He has a loose, fluid swing with lots of bat speed and extension. Nordgren attacks the ball aggressively and showed no problem handling highvelocity fastballs and pulling them with authority. He projects a ton of power in the future as he learns how to recognize pitches and get some more lift in his swing. Overall, Nordgren is a high ceiling physical talent with all the tools and makeup to succeed in professional baseball. This could be the year that he gets his chance to go out. If not, Nordren has signed to attend Creighton.
