An athletic, switch-hitting outfielder from Orlando, Lueck was part of a deep freshman class at Florida State that included catcher Cal Raleigh and pitchers Cole Sands and Tyler Holton. Lueck made an immediate impact at the plate for the Seminoles, leading the team with a .379/.494/.576 slash line his freshman year and following it up with a similarly strong sophomore campaign. Lueck has at least a 50 grade on his bat using the 20-to-80 scouting scale, although some holes in his swing have been exposed in his junior year as he's swung and missed at a high frequency. He finished the regular season batting .245/.364/.490 with a career-high 14 home runs, which could explain his increased strikeout numbers as bigger swings tend to lead to more empty swings. At 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, Lueck has some projection in his frame and could grow into more power. A below-average defender, Lueck profiles as a corner outfielder at the next level and will go as high as his bat can take him.
