What College Nick Castellanos Did Go To?
Nick Castellanos didn’t attend college but he attended American Heritage School(American Heritage Schools is a private, college preparatory) and was later transferred to Archbishop McCarthy High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, before his junior year.
Nick Castellanos was a member of the school’s baseball team. In his second year, American Heritage won the Florida state title.
He was named Florida’s Gatorade Player of the Year after ending his senior season with a .542 batting average, 34 runs scored, 41 RBIs, and 22 stolen bases while guiding his team to the Class 4A state title.
He was named Most Valuable Player at 2009 Under Armour All-America Baseball Game, which was held at Wrigley Field.
He scored three runs, had four doubles, and had three RBIs. Castellanos was selected Class 6A-5A-4A Player of the Year by the Sun-Sentinel.
During his high school career, the Gatorade Florida Baseball Player of the Year showed flexibility as an infielder, playing both short and third base. McCarthy’s (27-5) journey to the Class 4A title was aided by his contributions.
He also has average speed, which varies based on the day he is seen. His defense is a weak point of his game.
He possesses an above-average arm that should be enough for third base, but he has a delayed-release and fringe-average lateral range at times, as well as below-average intuition.
He possesses the raw talent to be a good third baseman, but others doubt his ability to transition to that position, believing he will be a burden.
