Trent Lockett, Former Minnesota High School Star, To Transfer From Arizona State

Minnesota high school start Trent Lockett set to transfer from Arizona State.

Arizona State's leading scorer Trent Lockett is leaving school in an attempt to transfer closer to home to be near his mother who is battling cancer in Minnesota, according to Marcus Fuller of The St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Lockett attended Hopkins High School and Minnesota would seem to be the perfect fit, except that the Golden Gophers do not have any open scholarships next season. Lockett, a 6-foot-4 junior guard, averaged 13 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists this season.

Lockett is on pace to graduate this summer, but could play immediately at another Division I school if he is granted a medical hardship waiver. Lockett cannot have contact with other schools until he is officially released from his scholarship with Arizona State.
