Four-star QB Kai Locksley flips commitment to Texas


Four-star athlete and dual-threat quarterback Kai Locksley officially chose the Longhorns Monday night after previously committing to Florida State in July.

“OFFICIALLY COMMITTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS!! #HookEm,” Locksley tweeted, including a picture of himself photo-shopped into a Texas uniform and a note thanking his recruiters.

Locksley is the 23rd ranked athlete prospect, according to 247sports. Though, he is expected to compete at quarterback when he arrives in Austin, the 6-foot-3 prospect from Maryland can also play wide receiver as he did at the Under Armour All-America Game.

With four-star quarterback Zach Gentry’s latest de-commitment from the Longhorns, Locksley joins three-star quarterback Matthew Merrick as the only quarterbacks in Texas’ 2015 class, however Merrick will not join the team this summer. Locksley fills a big need with Texas’ quarterback situation in question, and his commitment will be key in producing the best possible quarterback competition this fall.
