Three-star prospect Eric Lockett has narrowed his list of schools to a pair, after holding double-digit offers.

With official visits to both programs already in the books, the 6-foot-5 forward will play his college basketball career at either Western Kentucky or George Mason.

"I'd say it's 50-50 right now for both teams," Lockett said. "I'll decide in the next couple of weeks.

"Probably going to sit down with my Mom, and my head coach from school, weigh the pro's and con's from each."

"She likes both of them actually. He feels the same, they're both good situations for me."

Both schools have several qualities that stick out for the senior.

WKU--"Winning tradition, their coaches, the players. I really like the campus there, and they have a good business school."

George Mason--"Again, coaching staff, relationship with players, especially Coach Hewitt."

"I have no cons for either school, really."

With his mother and high school coach supportive of both programs, what do Lockett's friends say about his upcoming decision?

"I talk to a few friends about it," he said. "Some say Western Kentucky, some say George Mason.

"It's really about even, I only talk to a few about it, it's really split down the middle with them."

The Toppers could sign up to three players in the NCAA's fall signing period, with Lockett locked in as their number one priority at the wing/small forward position.
