Kaliq Lockett’s remarkable junior season statistics, coupled with his status as a four-star prospect, have made him a highly sought-after recruit. His impressive performances on the field have not gone unnoticed by top college football programs, including USC.

Lockett’s eye-catching junior season saw him haul in 59 receptions, accumulating nearly 1300 receiving yards and an astounding 13 touchdowns. His exceptional skills and playmaking ability earned him the District 9-6A Offensive Player of the Year award, solidifying his status as one of the top prospects in his class.

The Texas native has not been short of scholarship offers, with nearly 20 prestigious programs vying for his commitment. Notable names such as LSU, Michigan, Oklahoma, Penn State, and ASU have all extended offers to Lockett, highlighting his desirability as a recruit.

USC, despite having zero commitments in their 2025 class at the moment, has now thrown its hat into the ring for Kaliq Lockett. This move showcases the Trojans’ determination to secure his talents and add a game-changing player to their roster in the coming years.

Here’s an excerpt from a scouting report authored by Gabe Brooks of 247 Sports, evaluating Lockett:

“Possesses enormous hands and a 6-foot-7 wingspan. Dexterous and strong-handed. Displays advanced body control, vertical bounce, and timing. More than capable of going up and over multiple defenders to get contested throws. Freaky functional athlete who can elevate, land on his feet, and burst into full gait. Detonates out of cuts with explosive acceleration. Owner of impressive combine testing and some solid track and field. Exceptional production as a junior with 59-1,299-13 (22.0 per catch), going from 43 ypg as a soph to 118 ypg as a junior. Might lack the very top-end gear the fastest receivers in the class possess, but plenty fast and otherwise more than compensates for that highest gear.”

With the recruiting race for Kaliq Lockett heating up, college football fans and USC supporters will undoubtedly be watching closely as the talented wide receiver makes his decision in the coming months.
