There is a sense this spring and summer that this may be the most important time of year for all athletes.
With the pandemic forcing college coaches to miss out on two consecutive spring evaluation periods, college coaches will finally get to see and talk to recruits starting June 1, so there is a lot to catch up on.

PLAYER: Tellek Lockette
SCHOOL: Miami Northwestern
SCOUTING: When the Bulls kick things off for the 2021 season, Tellek Lockette will take his place on the offensive line. It’s a position that he has occupied since his freshman season.

At a time when offensive linemen are being looked at by colleges across the country, here is a prospect who checks all the boxes – and that is a positive thing.
