Is Texas Baseball Signee Lucas Gordon Better Than Randy Johnson?

A key factor in Texas securing the No. 1 baseball recruiting class in the nation was the signing of Lucas Gordon. Because as you see in the above video, the dude is an absolute BEAST on the mound.

And although his senior year at Notre Dam High School (Los Angeles, California) was cut short due to COVID, he still had enough time to remind the world why he’s THE best pitcher in high school — 2-0, 0.57 ERA, 30 strikeouts in 16 innings, and had a perfect game for 6 1/3 innings in his last game. That’s called domination, folks.

But is he better than Randy Johnson? No. Obviously not. The kid is just 18. He doesn’t even have hair on his chest. Or face. However, that doesn’t take away from the fact that Lucas clearly has the arm to one day be great. Maybe even Randy Johnson great?

So, lets just hope Lucas doesn’t end up skipping college ball and opt for the big leagues, after all he’s a projected 1st round pick (Randy Johnson was a 2nd round pick).
