5-foot-10 175, Lane looks is a capable receiver with good energy and bounce behind the plate. He showed a good athletic set that showcased good mobility in his block and recovery. Hands were soft letting the ball come to him and framing the ball with ease. Handled velocity and breaking pitches down with little movement in his presentation. Lane has good quick arm and feet as well as ability to improvise on bad pitches making accurate throws to second. Offensively, Lane showed one of the top exit velocities at 93mph. Upright stance with a vertical barrell, he showcased good raw power to pull side.

Sturdy bodied backstop, Oliphant is a well-schooled receiver with soft yet strong hands. He maintains instincts for the position and is quick on block and recovery. He throws from a high ¾ slot with a quick exchange and is on target with consistent 2.0 pop times in the tag zone. He relies on strength over bat speed with a natural loft to a swing with manageable length, driving the ball well to the opposite field gap during batting practice. He maintains a middle of the field approach but can show sneaky pull-side power. With a touch of arm strength gains, Oliphant will be poised to be an everyday receiver at the next level.
