Kai Locksley, son of Terps OC, receives Maryland offer

Kai Locksley, son of Terps offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, has received a scholarship offer from Maryland, according to multiple reports.

Just after 4 p.m. Saturday, one hour after the Terps kicked off against William & Mary at Byrd Stadium, Locksley tweeted from his account, @LOCKSnLOADED_3, “Got my first division 1 scholarship!!!!

Locksley is currently a sophomore at the Gilman School, and also a pretty good basketball player. He had four receptions for 46 yards in Gilman’s 20-19 overtime loss to Good Counsel on Friday.

The 6-foot-4, 180-pound wide receiver/quarterback is teammates with senior Shane Cockerille, who has already committed to Maryland for its class of 2013.

Three current Gilman juniors — cornerback Troy Vincent Jr., defensive tackle Chibuzo Ukandu, and outside linebacker Melvin Keihn — have also received offers from the Terps.

Maryland has struggled to recruit from Gilman, a Baltimore powerhouse coached by Biff Poggi, in past seasons. But Coach Randy Edsall brought in running back Kenneth Goins Jr. to this year's freshman class, and it looks like the school is becoming more and more of a target for the Terps.

Locksley will inevitably receive more Division 1 offers. But Maryland came knocking first.
