The top two prep catchers in Illinois are both lefthanded hitters, but they have different body types. The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Evan Skoug has a strong, stocky build while the 6-foot-2, 195-pound Lucas has a longer, leaner build with some natural strength to his lower half. Like Skoug, Lucas faces questions about his ability to stay behind the plate, though he has an average arm with a quick transfer. Scouts praised his bat coming into the year after he showed bat speed and a line-drive-oriented stroke, but he has not progressed as expected this spring. His best power is to his pull side, and he could develop average power. Lucas is a well below-average runner who is committed to Illinois State, where both of his parents attended and his father played both baseball and football.
