"I liked Berkeley," said Lokombo. "The [number of] diverse ethnicities, they are many. [The diversity] could be a factor [in my decision]."
Cal redshirt freshman defensive end Ernest Owusu hosted Lokombo on his official visit. He says he enjoyed his trip to Cal. He had many great things to say about the Golden Bears. "It was really good," he said of the visit.
"Cal is a good academic institution. I love the Bay Area, the nice weather. They have a great program and coaching stability."

"I'm used to Oregon," said Lokombo. "I know the area. It's really peaceful. It's a really good program and has good academics, too."
"I'm still open," said Lokombo. "Cal and Oregon, those are my two favorites. I may take a visit to Oregon State. Maybe, Boise State, even though they are in the WAC, it's a good school."
He says his parents will be a very important part of his decision making process, which he hopes to finish before the end of the year. Ultimately, the school that feels most comfortable to Lokombo will win the recruiting battle.
"By the end of the month, [I hope] to make my decision," said Lokombo. "I felt comfortable [in Berkeley]. I enjoyed the team."
Lokombo says he is not feeling any presser from either the Bears or Ducks to make haste. He currently is carrying a 3.0 GPA. He scored an 1100 on the SAT, which he plans to retake on January 26.
