He's headed to the Pac-12.

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound prospect said the Ducks started recruiting him at the end of last season and after attending summer camp the interest continued to come in. An offer came Wednesday and by the end of the night a decision was made.
Lockie said he called the Oregon coaches Wednesday night to make his commitment.
"They started recruiting me at the end of my junior year and then they came down to watch a spring practice," Lockie said.
"I went down for a day of summer camp and then we kept in touch, we talked on e-mail and then the scholarship went through (Wednesday) afternoon.
"They were kind of waiting on it and then after my parents and I talked about it we pulled the trigger last night. It's exciting. There is a reason they're winning and everything and then when I went down there to meet the coaching staff that really showed it was going to be the fit for me."
Oregon already has a quarterback in its class in Rocklin (Calif.) Whitney quarterback Jake Rodrigues, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound recruit who picked the Ducks in May.
Rodrigues was outstanding at the Stanford Elite 11 regional and had his moments at The Opening last week in Beaverton, Ore. Rivals.com ranks him as the No. 10 pro-style quarterback in the 2012 class and No. 41 in the California state rankings.
Lockie, who threw for 2,449 yards and 26 touchdowns in his junior season, is rated No. 84 in the state by Rivals.com. He said he's not worried about another quarterback being in Oregon's class.
"There is going to be competition at any school in the country," Lockie said. "That doesn't bother me at all."
