Lockett is a native of Largo, Florida and was ranked as the No. 137 wide receiver and No. 140 prospect out of Florida in the 2018 cycle. He received nearly two dozen offers on the recruiting front, but committed to Iowa over several other offers.
Other teams that showed interest included Boston College, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Oregon State, Purdue, Syracuse, UCF, USF, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin.
Iowa is off to an 0-2 start to the 2020 season. Lockett has not played in either of the Hawkeyes’ first two contests of the year.
