Notes

3/03/24
One of the most exciting freshman prospects in Indiana, Nelson is a national-level name to know with superstar potential. Holding a run-producer's profile, standing at 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, Nelson creates easy bat speed with special bat strength in a simple, left-handed stroke. The swing is repeatable and his lower half works efficiently to allow for high exit velocities (96.2 mph) with low effort, a trait of a future-power bat. Nelson is not just a power bat, his swing works to the inside part of the ball and his barrel accuracy also stands out, and he also moves extremely well (7.16 60) for having such a physical frame. Nelson will be a high level prospect when recruiters shift their focus to 2027 grads, and his frame + bat strength + athleticism is a special combination.
