Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Nicholas played as an attacking center midfielder and did well. He has good technical skills and a good game sense. He is a young player with some potential. He needs to develop physically and keep getting games and start to influence the cetner midfield more. Continued development could make him a solid prospect.
