Reports out of Oxford, Miss. indicate that former Hahnville High School and current Ole Miss standout defensive end Kentrell Lockett is thinking seriously about appealing to the NCAA for a sixth season of eligibility.
Lockett, who fought off a heart rhythm problem early in the season, went down to a season-ending knee injury in the fourth game of the 2010 season.
The 6-4, 275-pound defensive end was redshirted in 2006, but he could file a medical hardship case with the NCAA and possibly gain another year of eligibility.
In three games played this season for the Rebels Lockett recorded six tackles, 1one tackle for a loss and a quarterback sack before sustaining a tear to his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
In 2009, Lockett started all 13 games at right end for the Rebels and recorded a team-high 13 quarterback pressures. He also ranked second on the team in both tackles for loss (10) and sacks (5).
