Analysis: One of the things I like most about Alex is the variety of throws he can make. He is especially good on the corner route and putting just enough touch on the deep ball to avoid the over through.
He is not much of a threat to run wild as a ball carrier, but he has good accuracy on the run when rolling out.
He has a bit of a long release, but that is something that good coaching can correct.
Verdict: Alex has the chance to be play beyond his high school years, but he will likely need to be busy on the camp circuit to prove it.
The offense he plays in provides enough opportunities for Nicholson to show what he can do, so he is not locked into a high school situation that is not beneficial for him.
He will certainly be one to keep an eye on over the course of the next few months as the junior day and combine invites begin rolling out.
