  1. Tony Ciuffo says:

    Great work Matt. Super job you do with the draft. Nick actually committed to South Carolina at the age of 14. He was offered by Ray Tanner before he played a HS game. Thanks and best wishes.

  2. Matt Grabusky says:

    Tony, thanks for checking out the site and the kind words. I got Nick’s commitment age fixed, I knew it was 14, guess I just had 16U in my head while I was typing.

    Keep me up to date on how he is doing.

  3. E-Dub says:

    Nick really made a splash at ToS from what I’m hearing. Just a phenomenal year for high school catchers.

  4. Matt Grabusky says:

    I heard the same thing, and yes, very good year. After Martinez there are quite a few guys with a legitimate chance to be the second catcher taken.
