The son of Maryland's offensive coordinator may be facing the Terps in a few years.

Four-star Gilman (Md.) quarterback Kai Locksley has made his final college decision, flipping to the Texas Longhorns Monday, months after initially committing to the Florida State Seminoles. The son of Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, Kai was one of the area's top quarterbacks.

This likely won't be the last time Maryland fans see Kai: the Terrapins and Longhorns will play each other in 2017 and 2018. Locksley was a part of a three-quarterback class with the Seminoles, and has a clearer path to playing time at the position with Texas (although he still may end up at wide receiver or defensive back).

Locksley is considered a four-star prospect by the 247Sports Composite. He ranks as the No. 23 athlete in the country and the No. 6 player in the state of Maryland. The Terrapins are expected to sign one quarterback in the 2015 class -- West Virginia gunslinger Gage Shaffer -- and have shifted their focus entirely to 2016 star Dwayne Haskins.
