Lock is focused on the season

While recruiting has been humming along for him at a pretty steady pace, Nassau RB Travis Lock (6-0, 215) informed JCFootball.com that he's hardly even thought about much other than his upcoming season and that he will not take visits until after the Lions are no longer playing...

"Right now, my offers are from Syracuse and Kansas and I just got offers pretty recently from Arizona State and South Florida," Lock told JCFootball.com. "Marshall is real close to offering and Temple said they want me to visit, but they haven't offered yet. Also Tennessee has talked to me and I've heard from Florida Atlantic.

"I'm not going to take any visits until after my season is over. I want to focus on my season and help us get a championship, so that's what I'm looking at."

As a redshirt freshman this past season, Lock split carries with sophomore tailback Louis Johnson, but he still managed to tote the rock for over 1,000 yards and 14 touchdowns.

"I'm a big back, so I make most of my yards inside, but I have good vision and I think people underestimate my speed," Lock, who runs a 4.45 forty, said. "This season I'm working really hard on my blocking and on my hands so I can get more receptions."

Lock enjoyed a solid prep career at Lynbrook (NY) High School on Long Island. He went under-recruited and he signed with FBS's Marist College, but after a year there, he realized it wasn't the right fit.

"I just wasn't happy there and I talked to Nassau and felt like it was the right move for me to come here and to get another shot at things," Lock told JCFootball.com this spring. "It's been a great move for me. I love the staff and we have some really talented guys here so I'm always facing top guys and getting better."

On the academic front, Lock is on pace to graduate in December and he will have two years to play two following the 2012 football season.
