Grades: 2.8 GPA / Takes ACT in June

High School: Hahnville (5A)
To say Lockett is a playmaker is an understatement. As a junior, Kentrell had 70 tackles, 15 sacks, 6 forced fumbles, 4 fumble recoveries, and 15 deflections for the 12-1 Hahnville HS Football Team.
The big DE benches 230, squats 500, and has a vertical leap of '30.
When it comes to academics, Lockett carries a GPA of 2.8 and will be taking the ACT in June.
Lockett currently has claim to three offers. "I have been offered my Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and UCLA. I currently have no leader, but I do know that Ole Miss and Mississippi State will receive official visits from me."
The talented prospect said that he received his offer from Ole Miss on the telephone when he was speaking to one of the coaches, but he said he doesn't recall exactly who that coach was. He received his offer from Mississippi State through the mail.
There are a few factors that will play into Lockett's decision. "I want to go to a school that's in a good environment, has good academics, has a good football program, and is relatively close to home." He then went on to say, "Ole Miss is definitely not too far away."
Kentrell will be attending two camps. "I'll be attending the Nike Camp in Oxford, MS as well as the Army-Navy Camp (scout.com combine) at Tulane."
Lockett has been able to attend one Junior Day Event so far. "I attended LSU's Junior Day", he said. "I really like the atmosphere at LSU and the coaching staff is very friendly." Also of note is that Kentrell grew up an LSU fan.
As recruiting season heats up, with the resume that Lockett has built over the past season, he'll surely be hearing from many other schools around the country.
