Draft Scout Tyler Lockett News
11/05/14 - Just imagine what the conversations will be like in the Lockett household around Thanksgiving dinner if Tyler Lockett can pick up a few more yards and score a couple more touchdowns. Might start off something like this: "So, Dad, what does it feel like to be No. 2?" After another eye-opening performance in No. 9 Kansas State's 48-14 romp over Oklahoma State on Saturday, Lockett moved past current Packers star Jordy Nelson for second in school history in yards receiving and tied Quincy Morgan for second in career touchdown catches. All that's standing between him and No. 1 is his father, Kevin Lockett. "A lot of people have been telling me I've been getting really close," Tyler Lockett said. "You get anxious every now and then, but it's not going to happen in one game. We still have four games left. If it happens, it's going to happen. You just have to go out there and play. You might look to see where you're at the end of games, but as long as we win, I'm OK with that."
Especially with some big games coming up. The grind starts when Kansas State (7-1, 5-0 Big 12) visits No. 7 TCU on Saturday. Matchups with West Virginia and Baylor also loom. Lockett finished with six catches for 94 yards and a touchdown against the Cowboys, giving him 2,877 yards receiving for his career. His father piled up 3,032 yards from 1993-96. And the youngster now has 23 touchdown catches, three back of his dad. "It would be really cool if all those things happened on senior night. That would be an awesome experience," Lockett said, "but I can only control what I can control." - AP Sports
11/03/14 - Kansas State coach Bill Snyder had watched Oklahoma State slice so effortless through his defense on the game's opening drive that he wondered whether the tone had been set. Morgan Burns didn't give him a chance to think anything more of it. The speedy cornerback returned the ensuing kickoff 86 yards for a touchdown, and that set the No. 11 Wildcats off and running. Jake Waters threw two TD passes, Charles Jones ran for two more scores and Kansas State routed the Cowboys 48-14 on Saturday night. "You've got a lot of guys, sometimes when that happens, they're standing around looking at each other like, 'Wow, what's going on?' Snyder said about the opening drive, in which Oklahoma State went 86 yards in just eight plays. "And it didn't happen. There wasn't time for it to happen."
The rest of the game belonged to the Wildcats. Curry Sexton had nine catches for 159 yards and a touchdown, and Tyler Lockett had six receptions for 94 yards and a score, helping Kansas State (7-1, 5-0, No. 9 CFP) remain the lone unbeaten team in the Big 12 heading into next week's showdown at 10th-ranked TCU. "I know it's going to be a heck of a matchup, a tough place to play," Sexton said. "We're happy with where we're at, we're happy with how we're playing, but we're not satisfied." - AP Sports
10/13/14 - SEPT 29 BIG 12 SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Tyler Lockett, K-State, PR, Sr, Tulsa, Okla.,...Tyler Lockett collected 143 punt return yards, including a 58-yard touchdown, and 256 all-purpose yards to lead K-State to a 58-28 win over UTEP. The 143 punt-return yards were the second-most in school history and 29 yards short of tying the school record of 172. His touchdown was the Wildcats’ nation-leading 92nd non-offensive TD since 1999. Lockett also tallied 84 receiving yards on four catches. - Big 12 football
10/08/14 - Jake Waters admitted that he was "gassed" after a 50-yard quarterback-keeper in the first half helped propelled No. 23 Kansas State to a rout of Texas Tech on Saturday night. Funny word choice considering he never let up on the gas the rest of the night. Waters wound up throwing for 290 yards and four touchdowns, ran for 105 yards and another score and paced the Wildcats' high-octane offense in a 45-13 victory. "It seems like we were clicking so well on offense," Waters said. "I want to get like that every game. It's a special feeling when you get like that."
Tyler Lockett had 12 catches for 125 yards and two scores, and Curry Sexton had nine catches for 128 yards and the other two scores, helping the Wildcats (4-1, 2-0) prepare for a showdown in two weeks with fourth-ranked Oklahoma by easily dispatching the Red Raiders. "Jake was pretty decent about finding the right guys tonight," said Kansas State coach Bill Snyder, who is always reticent to lavish too much praise on anyone. - AP Sports
10/01/14 - Many stars refuse to admit they look at the players they're passing on the slow climb through the record books. They'll speak in platitudes about focusing on the team first, the individual second, and shrug off most of their achievements. Tyler Lockett knows exactly where he stands in Kansas State's record books. It isn't for a lack of humility, though. Lockett is about the most humble guy you'll come across. It's simply that he knows quite well whom he just passed on the career yards receiving list this weekend — his uncle, former Kansas State star Aaron Lockett. He also knows which player he's chasing for first place: his father, Kevin Lockett. "It's a great achievement, a great accomplishment, but I just look at it like that's an individual thing I can look back on at the end of the season," Lockett said, "but right now, I just want to help us win every game we can."
OK, so he still speaks in platitudes. But the latest of the Lockett family to come through No. 23 Kansas State may just be the best of them. With four catches for 84 yards in the Wildcats' 58-28 victory over UTEP on Saturday, Lockett climbed to third in school history with 2,469 yards receiving. The Packers' Jordy Nelson is next, followed by his pops with 3,032. Kevin Lockett makes sure to remind the youngster the record is still a ways off, too. "He'll say, 'You're still not better than me,'" Tyler Lockett said with a broad grin, "and it'll stay that way unless I beat it." - AP Sports
