Again, judging from seeing him very few times, and his colelge statistics.
Perhaps a better comparison would be Jamie Mcginn, except that Mcginn had size.
Not the best way to evaluate a prospect's progression or upside in my opinion. Neither McGinn or Feriero are very good comparables.
I haven't watch BU as much as KirbyDots but I have seen Nieto play quite a bit and I agree with him/her on his upside. I don't think anyone believes he's going to become a defensive specialist at the next level but he's certainly capable of playing a good defensive game. The one thing he needs to do is find some consistency, that seems to be his biggest issue right now.
