Hahnville, La. defensive end Kentrell Lockett is a big, lean defensive end that has film that shows how dominate of a player he is capable of being on the college level. He's recently narrowed his list down to five lucky schools.
"Ole Miss, UCLA, Florida, West Virginia and Alabama are my top five schools right now," Lockett said. "Really there is no order and I sure dont have a leader. I should know pretty quick how they are going to fall in line after I start taking my official visits though."
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.
"The only school I have gotten a call from so far is Ole Miss," Lockett said. "When the storm hit we went to Houston because we had evacuated. When I was there the phone lines were so messed up we couldn't call out or get calls. My cell phone still won't take calls and my home line was messed up for over a week. Things are just getting back to normal with all that so I expect more schools to be calling soon."
Lockett is ranked as the No. 15 player in the state of Louisiana and the No. 17 weakside defensive end in the nation by Rivals.com.
"We were real lucky with the hurricane," Lockett said. "Nothing much really happened here where I was, but we were without power and water for about a week. They have been using the school as a shelter, but we are supposed to go back this Thursday if they can get the lunchroom stocked."
Even with all that has been going on in that part of the country, football has kept on marching and Lockett has already played his first game.
