    Per Jeff Goodman of CBS, Arizona State's leading scorer from the last two seasons (this year at 13 PPG), Trent Lockett is transferring from the school.

    Lockett is currently on course to graduate after three years which would mean he'd be eligible to play next season. Goodman is also reporting that Lockett's mother is sick and that he wants to play somewhere closer to home, which is in Minnesota.

    Eye On College Basketball - CBSSports.com Arizona State's leading scorer transferring

    Iowa State assistant coach T.J. Otzelberger heavily recruited Lockett to Iowa State originally out of high school.

    Given the fact that Lockett would be eligible to play next season, has a ton of experience and is obviously a proven high-major player - if Iowa State's roster allows it to happen, this move would make a ton of sense for the Cyclones in my opinion.

    Stay tuned.

    That article mentioned two other guys leaving that program. Looks like Sendek is having some serious player retention problems.

    Sweet! Nice find. Most importantly, hope everything goes fine with his mother.

    Is three-plus hours "close enough" to home?

    Only see this happening IF Royce leaves and Pelle can't come. Yeah, it would be a nice get, but we're STACKED at guards now and have a billion players leaving next year as is.

    Was he heavily recruited for a slower style of play?
    I don't remember him. Would he fit here?

    This probably means he's actually going to LSU.

    Lockett did play on the same 31-0 state championship team at Hopkins HS with Royce White.

    Alot of motivation for Royce to come back and have just a grand ole time next year....

    Old High School teammate, new buddies here at ISU, and a destiny to make it to the Final Four...

    I better wake up soon.... Or Eva Mendez better start making out with me...

    Would he be ready for major conference play after those years in the PAC-whatever?
