Ex-Gilman star QB Locksley to transfer from Texas
Former Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley has left the Texas football team and intends to transfer after the season, Longhorns coach Charlie Strong confirmed Monday. Locksley, a two-time All-Metro second-team selection, redshirted last season and switched to wide receiver this offseason. He does not have a catch in Texas’ six games, and Strong cited playing time in Locksley’s decision to leave the program. Locksley initially committed to Florida State over Texas and Maryland, where his father, Mike Locksley, was serving as the Terps’ offensive coordinator. The four-star dual-threat quarterback recruit switched his pledge to Texas just days before national signing day in 2015. By that point, Maryland coach Randy Edsall had been fired, and Mike Locksley had been both promoted to interim coach and not retained by new coach DJ Durkin.
