Nash is arguably the best prep athlete available for the 2007 draft, scoring very high in the composite SPARQ tests that assess one's overall athletic ability. His best baseball attribute may be his speed, as he is a potential terror on the basepaths, and that speed may move him from the shortstop position to centerfield, where he could track down fly balls like few others can. He is a switch-hitter that is somewhat raw at the plate, but when he makes contact the ball explodes off of his bat, leading many to believe that he has a fair amount of power potential as he continues to refine his game. While he has good range in the infield, he is prone to errors, which is why a move to the outfield may make more sense. For now he stands as a rare, true five-tool shortstop that will help make Utah a hot-spot for scouts this coming spring. He has committed to play for Oregon State.
