Remember this guy? And this guy?

Well, get ready for the third installment of the trilogy — Kevin's son and Aaron's nephew, Tyler Lockett (b. Sept. 28, 1992), is headed to a Manhattan campus near you this fall.

Tyler has been described as a combination of his father's uncanny pass-catching abilities, and his uncle's build, speed and shiftiness — all of which makes him a perfect candidate to be Tramaine Thompson's understudy.

Tyler likely will redshirt this season in order to add weight and learn the playbook, but starting with the 2012 spring game, I expect him to have an explosive impact on the Cats' offense.

He and Thompson will make a truly dangerous deep-threat duo for the two seasons they'll play together, I predict.
