Ex-Gil­man star QB Lock­sley to trans­fer from Texas

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

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.
