Kentrell Lockett reschedules Ole Miss visit
The following information was revealed during our interview with Kentrell Lockett:
Have you received any awards since the end of the season? "I was Metro (New Orleans) MVP, and I made 1st Team All-Parish and All-State."
What were your stats from the season? "Well, half of our games were canceled because of the Hurricane. In seven games, I had 82 tackles and 17 sacks."
Are you playing basketball right now for Hahnville? "Yes sir, I have only played in two basketball games so far because of football."
Have you scheduled your official visits yet? "I am going to Alabama (1/13) and Ole Miss (1/20), but we are trying to get it changed so both of my parents can come. I will probably be coming on January 7th (to Ole Miss) now. Those are the two schools I have narrowed it down to."
Why did Alabama and Ole Miss make your cut? "I went to the Alabama/LSU game. I enjoyed their environment, and me and Buddy Wyatt have really bonded. The reason I choose Ole Miss is because of the bond I have with Coach Wilson and Coach Orgeron. It is more of a relationship than recruiting for them. They really care about me as a person and not just football."
While you are on your official visits; what will you be looking for? "I think it is going to be the comfort level I have while I am on my visits. I will have to be there for the next 4 to 5 years, so I want to go to the place I feel the most comfortable."
Lets say you feel equally comfortable with both campuses; what will be important for you when it comes decision time? "Basically playing time. I do not want to go to a college and redshirt and not get on the field for two years. Playing would be the next biggest factor."
Lockett carries a 2.7 GPA / 19 ACT.
