Georgia State football has faced its share of challenges on the field this season playing a brutal schedule in its second year of existence but the coaching staff has continued to roar off the field landing another commitment from a talented prospect. According to Keith Niebuhr of Rivals.com, Portal HS defensive tackle Joe Lockley made it official and pledged his service to Georgia State coaching staff.
Lockley is a 6'1, 290lbs defensive tackle/nose guard prospect with tremendous athleticism for someone his size. He also serves as the Portal's place kicker. Joe also competes in track and field with a personal best 123-10' in the discus and 32-1' in the shot put. Joe also had offers from future Sun Belt member South Alabama and interest from multiple SEC and ACC schools.
Georgia State now has 16 verbal commits for the 2012 cycle and could sign as many as 22 players on National Signing Day on February 1st.
