Cali ATH favors two Pac-10 schools

Bret Lockett is a 6-1.5, 190-pound athlete from Diamond Bar, California, and while Austin Usher and DeSean Jackson were the main attractions at the Stanford Nike camp when it came to receivers, Lockett feels he's right there with the guys at the top of the 'A-list'.

"I think I'm the next best thing, honestly," Bret told Monday. "No one could guard me. But since Austin Usher and the guy from Poly (Jackson) were there, they got a lot more reps than anybody else.

"But I feel like I could have competed against the best of them."

Lockett is being recruited as a receiver, which is a little ironic considering he was a defensive specialist as a junior.

"I feel like I have everything put together," Lockett said. "I have good feet and make good cuts. I have the size to get off corners that are trying to muscle up on me."

Bret went to both the San Diego and Stanford Nike camps, and his top numbers were a 4.47 40, 4.16 shuttle, 32.7-inch vertical jump and 15 reps of 185 pounds on the bench.

The Arizona Wildcats have already offered Lockett a scholarship. "Oregon State told me on Saturday that they are probably going to offer me too," he said. "USC, Kansas State, Northern Arizona and New Mexico have also been by the school."

Bret's top-5 right now is Arizona, Oregon State, Oregon, USC and Arizona State, with the Wildcats and Beavers holding a distinct edge over the rest.

"I'm going to USC's camp and I'm also going to camp at Oregon State and Arizona," said Lockett. "I'll see what happens from there. If I'm not getting the stats after the first couple of games I'll probably commit somewhere."

Lockett also mentioned his teammate, DB Randy Tyler, as one of the top defensive backs he went up against this past weekend. "He's only 5-8, but he's just a good player," Bret said of Tyler. "Oregon State and Kansas State are after him."
