Locksley, who was recruited as a quarterback but switched to receiver prior to this season, confirmed his intentions to transfer earlier this month. He never played for the Longhorns, but judging by reactions on Twitter he was well-liked by a number of teammates.
Here are some of the responses Locksley’s announcement garnered:

Locksley, a 6-foot-4, 188-pound dual-threat quarterback from Baltimore, should have plenty of options. He was ranked as the No. 338 recruit overall in the 2015 class out of Gilman High School in Maryland. He was the No. 6 recruit in the state and the No. 23-ranked “athlete” in the class.
He initially committed to Florida State, but landed at Texas after the Longhorns lost New Mexico native Zach Gentry to Michigan. Locksley never challenged for the Texas starting job.
