"Nick is a tremendous athlete," said (Iowa Head Coach Jack) Dahm. "He is actually someone that Coach Brownlee saw late in the summer. Nick is a tall, lean player that as he continues to get stronger, has a chance to play outstanding baseball. He is kind of a diamond in the rough for us. A lot of these other guys were recruited by a ton of other programs, but Nick is the one that got interest late in the summer and we're fortunate enough to get him to commit to us."
