Even though Baltimore (Md.) Gilman has had a rough start to the year, Kai Locksley is seeing plenty of offers come his way. The highly-regarded athlete recently picked offers from some BCS title contenders.
"Alabama is definitely a big-time offer," said the 6-foot-4, 185-pound Locksley. "It's really humbling to be offered by a big time program like that. It just makes you want to work harder. Right now they want me as an athlete because they are still evaluating me at quarterback. I've never been down there. I talked to a couple of their coaches before and got a good vibe from them.
"I got the Indiana offer the same night as the Alabama offer. They are actually offering me as a quarterback. They liked what they saw from my first few games and I think they are coming to see me throw soon. I know a good amount about Indiana."
A few days before the Crimson Tide and Hoosiers pulled the trigger, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Tennessee offered Locksley, and there are many more schools showing serious interest.
"I believe all of those offers are for quarterback," Locksley said. "I met Urban Meyer down in Florida right after he got the job down there. I'm sure I have connections through my dad at Wisconsin and Tennessee.
"I think schools like Northwestern, UCLA, North Carolina, Nebraska, Virginia Tech and some others will come in soon," he said. "Most of the coaches want to come watch me throw at practice or in a game. Once they evaluate me, hopefully the offers will come through."
Locksley's father is the offensive coordinator at Maryland and the progress the Terps are making on offense has made an impression on the high school junior.
"I'm definitely excited about where Maryland is headed," said Locksley They have a good amount of in-state talent headed that way and it's about to blow up, so I'm excited to see where that program is going."
Locksley will attend the Maryland game against West Virginia this weekend at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore and might go to Ohio State game against Wisconsin on September 28.
