Cape Cod- McLean got a late start to his summer while nursing a sore lat, but he made a loud impression in his eight-game stint, hitting two home runs and driving in six, while working nine walks against 12 strikeouts. With a rare combination of athleticism and physicality, the 6-foot-4, 210-pound football/baseball talent really stands out for his power. Holliday said McLean's righthanded pop reminded him of former Oklahoma State great Pete Incaviglia (whom Holliday coached in the 1980s). He also has surprisingly good pitch recognition and plate discipline considering his two-sport background and lack of reps relative to his peers. He profiles well at the hot corner, where he showed the ability to make impressive backhanded plays and handle slow dribblers in front of him, thanks to a very strong arm. After hitting eight homers in just 137 at-bats as a true freshman, McLean looks poised to bust out in a big way as a sophomore in 2022, and he's an obvious first-round talent for the 2023 draft.

PBR was on hand in Chicago for the USA Baseball NTDS.  Potential dual guy with extreme raw power and a big arm on the bump.  Also being recruited at high levels as a football player.  Physcial "manchild" has a presence in the box and on the mound.  Extremely advanced batspeed with a lot of movement and a load that can start and stop.  Swing and miss is present in game situations against upper level arms.  On the mound it is raw but it is big velo, up to 94 and sitting 91-92.

Strength is present in a young frame.  Coils the front side slightly at balance as the arm works in a short, loose action to load the scapular.  High-3/4 slot lacks a consistent release point, but tends to improve as the outing lengthens.  Arm side run to the fastball, ranging 86-89, touching 90 at times.  Slider is hard with late tilt, but still maturing to be consistent.

Athletic frame and is also a QB prospect according to Garner Coach Goffena. Demonstrated power with a sacrifice fly, driving the ball to the well.  Has the ability to use the entire field as well.  Setup is balanced and athletic with a crouch and a slightly open stance. His load is smooth and back with a short stride to balance. Nolan’s bat speed is fast with a short level path. He has a fluid rhythm and displays a confidence beyond his years.  Ball carries with ease from behind the dish.  Has been up to 88, with better reports, on the bump this spring.
