Mike Farrell, the national recruiting director for Rivals.com, believes that Maryland has a chance to bring four-star recruit Kai Locksley to College Park in 2015. But Farrell said the negatives might outweigh the positives in terms of the way Terps coach Randy Edsall is trying to build his program and offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, Kai's father, does his job. The younger Locksley recently listed Maryland among the six schools he's considering. That list likely grew by one when Kai Locksley received an offer from Alabama on a visit this week to Tuscaloosa.
