MotSaG Chat with James Lockhart

4star_recruit_iconThere are always recruits trying to get their name out there for schools and coaches to see them and give them an offer. None may be more persistent than James Lockhart a 6’3″ 245 lbs 4 star DE from Ennis, Texas. Who went on a twitter frenzy last week trumping up support for Ohio State coaches to watch his film and offer him a scholarship. Buckeye Fans and current commits took notice and championed his effort. Time will tell whether the 87th ranked recruit in the country according to 247sports effort will have the results he seeks but in the meantime here is an interview I had with him to gauge where his interest really sits with the Buckeyes. You can judge for yourself how much he is really interested in OSU.
