Name: Terry Lockett

Position: Defensive Tackle

Year: Freshman

Height: 6’2”

Weight: 261 lbs

Hometown: Springfield, Mass.

High School: Springfield Central

2020 stats: Didn’t play senior season of high school.

2021 projections: Lockett already being on campus is a good sign for his progress up the depth chart. He even appeared in a couple of plays in Syracuse’s spring ball scrimmage. While no new defensive linemen have an above 50-percent chance of jumping the super seniors on the current line, Lockett could easily play himself onto the two-deep.

How’d he get here?: Lockett only got three offers, but one of them was from Michigan. Buffalo and UMass were the other programs interested in Lockett.

What’d recruiting sites say?: Three stars all-around. Rivals ranked Lockett the No. 3 prospect in Massachusetts.

Money quote: Lockett won’t be one of the guys that gets out-benched by Babers.

“He had a dream and a goal of playing Division I football and he knew what he had to do in the weight room,” Lockett’s high school head coach Valdamar Brower said. “So that’s what he did.”

Tweets of wonder: Lockett may have not played a senior season, but he dominated during his junior season.

What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Dorian Lockett is a voice actor who has lent his voice to a number of video games. His voice can be heard in Disney’s “Soul,” the journey of a jazz musician whose soul is separated from his body.

Interesting nugget o’interest: We love early recruits here, and Lockett was the first recruit committed to the Orange in the class of 2020. He committed on March 22, 2020.
