Lubanski has had a remarkable high school career. He's raised his average from .405 as a freshman, to .467 as a junior, to .592 as a junior to more than .600 as a senior. He's been a mainstay on Team USA's youth and junior squads, and played with and against the best players in the country for years. As a regular on the showcase circuit, he's also been visible to scouts and recruiters in all parts of the country. He has four tools that grade out average or better, and even his arm, his weakest tool, may become average. His hitting ability is obvious, but his best tool is his speed. He's been timed in less than 6.5 seconds in the 60-yard dash. He has long strides and glides to balls in center; it's a sight to behold watching him leg out triples, a frequent occurrence. His power will evolve as he fills out his 6-foot-3, 185-pound frame. He's a tireless worker and takes a lot of pride in his performance. Lubanski is a top student with a commitment to Florida State, but he's a major draft prospect and could go as high as seventh overall to the Orioles.
