If the opposite is a "Jack of none, master of one (or a few)" then I think the opposite would be a Specialist.
If the opposite is "Master of all trades, jack of none", you could use omnipotent, as Matt Эллен suggested.
If the opposite in mind is "Jack of none, master of none", you could use unskilled or untrained. J.R. suggested in a comment that novice or neophyte could also be used. You could also use incompetent but that usually has negative connotations.
Renaissance man or polymath.
You could also think of an expert on a topic, a master in some skill, because he's probably too focused on his subject to achieve that level of mastery in a second skill.
If the opposite is being a specialist, "one-trick pony" is a good phrase.
