Coach Collins and his staff get a big addition to the defense as defense end Michael Lockhart commits to the Jackets.
The Jackets were able to be in Lockhart’s final top three schools, which he announced on Friday. The Jackets are in need of defensive linemen especially since Desmond Branch, Kyle Cerge-Henderson, and Anree Saint-Amour all graduated this past year.
Now with the addition of Lockhart to the Jackets, he could have the potential to have an immediate impact. In his senior season, Lockhart recorded 5 sacks and had a total of 37 tackles with 10 tackles for loss. He is currently listed at 6’5 250 pounds and is definitely a force to be reckoned with. He is one of the best defensive tackles out of the state of Alabama and will fit nicely in Coach Thacker’s defense.
