Eric Lockett could have the biggest impact among the 2014 recruiting class for George Mason. I was told by some recruiting analysts who watched him that he is a kid who will “bleed for his team”. Turns out he literally does just that. In a recent playoff game he came back from injury to lead his victory while scoring 22 points:
“The 6-foot-6 senior, a George Mason signee, sustained a facial laceration during the first overtime session, but he returned in the second extra period to score three important baskets in the final 3 minutes.
“I just wanted to do this for my team,” Lockett said. “All I could think was that I didn’t want to lose this game.”
How badly does George Mason need players of this type of character?
