Schools looking at Lockett
Hahnville, La. defensive end Kentrell Lockett is a big, tall, lean defensive end that several schools are starting to take a good look at.
"It's really mostly all of the same schools calling and stuff that have been, except LSU, they have started calling again," Lockett said. "They also came by my school a few weeks ago and they wanted to pick more film on me. They told me that they if they signed me that I would have to redshirt while they put weight on me and then they asked if I would play linebacker. I told them that I was not interested in playing linebacker."
The 6-foot-4, 212-pound Lockett attended the NIKE camp at Ole Miss where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.85 seconds, posted a five second shuttle and had a 29-inch vertical jump.
While he was not at the game, he was impressed with Alabama's 31-3 victory against Florida a couple of weeks ago. That game increased his interest in the Crimson Tide.
"I didn't get to see the game on TV, but I saw the highlights and what Alabama did to Florida really impressed me," Lockett said. "They called me the next day and asked if I saw the game and they were just telling me about it. I haven't gotten to go to any games yet this year because we've been playing on Saturdays."
Lockett is ranked as the No. 15 player in the state of Louisiana and the No. 12 weakside defensive end in the nation by Rivals.com.
