Luke is a talented athlete who is fun to watch. Quick/fluid actions allow him to work naturally through the baseball as he has a quick release and zip on his throws across the diamond (89 mph velocity). He has plus lateral range and makes the tough plays in the hole and to his glove side with ease. At the plate, this righty stands in well with fluid rhythm. Quick hands whip the barrel (94 exit velocity) to and through the contact point as he extends through and drives the ball to the deep parts of the park. A special player, Luke has the ability to make things happen both offensively and defensively.

This athletic catcher shows a bright future on the diamond with the makings of a special type player at the next level. Offensively, he has athletic/smooth actions with fluid rhythm to load. He gets good hand separation and delivers the barrel with leverage - resulting in a barrel explosion (91 mph exit velocity) with the ball coming off well of his barrel from both sides of the plate. With flexion and good sway he pockets pitches with a soft/sure mitt. He shows off his athletic abilities through the blocking process as he is a wall behind the plate. Pop times showed in the 1.97 range with accuracy / on line carry (93 mph velocity) on his throws. Luke has a tremendous upside and will get looks from the top collegiate coaches and pro scouts.
