By the time Lockett left San Diego, he was a commit to the Aztecs.
"My trip went real good," said Lockett. "I actually committed while I was on my visit."
New cornerbacks coach Tony White was recruiting Lockett, and White knew of Lockett, having been a grad assistant at UCLA when his older brother, Bret, was playing for the Bruins.
"Coach White was there while my brother was there so it's pretty good to have him there," said Lockett.
Lockett was getting anxious about his future, especially late in the game.
"I was pretty excited, because recruiting wise, it was about to end soon. So when they offered me on the visit, I didn't take long at all to answer. It's close to home and I'll get a good education."
Lockett said the coaching staff in place at SDSU, led by new coach Brady Hoke, impressed him.
"They just got the coaching staff from Ball State so it sounds to me like its a good coaching staff who knows how to win," said Lockett.
At 6-0, 165, Lockett said he wants to be at 175 coming in as a freshman.
"I want to be at 175 so I can really be able to come in and start playing and make plays on defense," said Lockett. firstname.lastname@example.org
