The season is near and Kai Locksley is fixated on getting ready for the season. With three offers and tons of BCS interest, the 2015 athlete is working to make sure he is the starting quarterback for Baltimore (Md.) Gilman this season.
"I actually put the basketball down this summer," said the 6-foot-4, 185-pound Locksley. "I focused more on playing quarterback so I can be prepared. I did a lot of one-on-one lessons."

"A lot of school have sent me letters and talked to my coaches, letting them know that they're all watching me and ready to pull the trigger after they see me play quarterback," he said. "I know Penn State, Temple, Vanderbilt, Michigan, Miami, North Carolina, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and Virginia are interested. Both Penn State and Virginia come to my school pretty frequently."
Locksley was focused on basketball for much of the offseason, which didn't leave much time for college visits.
"I didn't do any visits this year," Locksley said. "I'll probably do more of that this coming year. I definitely want to see a lot of the ACC and SEC schools. I talked to coach Moorehead at VT and he wanted me to come out to their camp but I never made it out there.
"I'm trying to make it out to Michigan State and some of the Big Ten schools that are recruiting me like Penn State and Iowa," he said. "I'm just looking for opportunities and I'm willing to listen to everyone."
Locksley's father, Mike Locksley, is the offensive coordinator at Maryland.
