McMillan is the fourth-ranked prep catcher in this year's class. Primarily a catch and throw guy at this point, McMillan faces a tough challenge moving forward as he fits into one of the most risky demographics there is: a glove first, righthanded-hitting high school catcher. Scouts are unsure of how his bat is going to play moving forward, as he's more of a line drive hitter currently without much power, and his size doesn't offer the sort of projection you would like. He is one of the best receivers in the class with plus hands, but without a carrying tool, it might be tough for a team to buy him out of his commitment to Florida.
