Big 12 Action for Lockett spoke with Manvel defensive back Will Lockett recently to get the update on what his upcoming plans are. He will be traveling to a Big 12 program to take in some game day action this weekend.

So far the season has been going well for Alvin (Tex.) Manvel defensive back William Lockett, a 2015 player who has already started getting lots of love from college recruiters across the country.

His team is 4-1 on the season and once again expectations are high for a team that is still somewhat new to the scene but found themselves in the title game a few short years ago. And as he continues to get things done on the field, he will also be checking out what others (as in colleges) are doing as well.

This weekend he will take a trip to the highest ranked program in the Big 12.

"I'm going on an unofficial to Oklahoma this weekend. The coaches have been sending me things so I will go check them out to see them play TCU," Lockett said. 

At the moment, the 6-foot, 180-pound Lockett has not landed his first offer, but based on the interest it won't be long. He's gotten game invites from Northwestern, Iowa State, TCU, Kansas State and of course Oklahoma. 

He has not yet scheduled another visit, but has an idea of how he looks for things to work out when the time comes.

"I want to head out to Northwestern when the season is over. I want to try to get out to Auburn too," Lockett said. "With the season going on, I have to manage time."

Lockett, who has close to 20 tackles and five pass break-ups on the year, said that he likes that Northwestern "has good academics, and is a Top 25 program" in football. And this program is recruiting him the hardest, followed by Kansas State and Baylor to round out the three schools that seem to be most interested right now.
