Former Gilman quarterback Kai Locksley, who left the University of Texas in October, has announced that he'll attend Arizona Western College in Yuma.

Locksley tweeted Monday night that he signed with Arizona Western.

A two-time Baltimore Sun All-Metro second-team selection, Locksley redshirted in 2015 and switched to wide receiver last offseason. He did not have a catch in six games for Texas in 2016 before leaving the team. Texas coach Charlie Strong was eventually fired.

Arizona Western College reached this year's El Toro Bowl, the national championship game of the National Junior College Athletic Association, losing 25-22 to Garden City Community College.

Wanting to return to quarterback, Locksley could play for the Matadors in 2017 and re-open his recruiting. At least 13 Arizona Western players are headed to four-year schools next season.

Locksley initially committed in 2014 to Florida State over Texas and Maryland, where his dad, Mike Locksley, was the Terps' offensive coordinator. But he flipped his commitment to Texas in 2015.

At Gilman, Locksley was rated the No. 17 senior dual-threat quarterback in the nation by Rivals.com. He ran for 1,050 yards and 17 touchdowns and passed for 915 yards and five touchdowns as a senior.
