Last season he had 7 homers and 34 RBIS and was 7-1 with a 1.41 ERA. Here’s a scouting report on Lucas from this summer by Perfect Game: “He has a strong 6-foot-2 athletic build with strong forearms and very good hand strength.  He has a powerful swing that stays tight to his body and the barrel easily whips through for plus raw bat speed.  His hips are fast and uses movement to create rhythm and timing.  He shows intent throughout and does not get cheated. In the bottom of the first he jumped on the mound touching 91 mph with a quick arm and minimal effort.  His curveball shows promise in the mid-70s with sharp break and spotty command.  His upright delivery was inline and has upside as he refines and uses his lower half better.  He is a very high follow two-way guy.”

Mississippi State landed commitments from RHP Mikey Tepper of Fort Mill and 2022 INF David Mershon of Eastside.
