Los Toros sign 6th overall SuperDraft pick Lucas Bartlett

FC Dallas has announced the signing of their first-round SuperDraft pick, selected 6th overall, Lucas Bartlett. Bartlett signed a one-year contract with club options for 2023, 2024, and 2025.

Bartlett played at St John’s Drake, and Loyola Chicago in college, redshirting twice.

3rd Degree’s Take

Signing a 6th overall pick early in spring training was always going to happen. If you are selecting a guy this high it’s to keep him. Bartlett is advertised by the club: big, fast, physical, with pretty good feet. It just remains to be seen if he can defend.

Interestingly he got a “Nkosi” contract, 1+1+1+1 rather than the usual longer contract of a Homegrown type player or Generation adidas signing.

Bartlett’s age, 24 going on 25, is old for a pick and remains the only, admittedly small, negative so far. But he should be a good squad player and a solid depth piece.
