One member of the Maryland football family is electing to remain in the ACC instead of joining the Big Ten.
The son of Terps offensive coordinator — and former Illinois offensive coordinator — Mike Locksley, Kai, committed to Florida State on Thursday, selecting the Seminoles over Maryland and a bunch of other schools.
Kai Locksley is the 12th-ranked quarterback in the nation, according to Rivals, and the seventh-ranked recruit in the state of Maryland.

But while dad and the Terps will be beginning their inaugural season in the Big Ten after a big move from the ACC, Kai has opted to remain in the ACC and play for the defending national champs.
The Terps shouldn't feel too bad — even if it smarts to have the offensive coordinator's son head to a former rival — because Kai picked Florida State over a ton of other top-flight programs including Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Georgia, Miami, Michigan State, Ohio State, Oregon, Texas, UCLA, Virginia Tech and Wisconsin. Wow.
