Locksley to New Mexico; Will Local Players Follow?
Sorry, been a busy morning. I've got some good stuff, including Dunbar-Baltimore star Tavon Austin talking about his decision-making process - I'll post it later this afternoon, but here's a quick hint: Maryland made an impression with its efforts Saturday but West Virginia is his favorite school right now.
That said, here's a story that no doubt will reverberate across the local football recruiting landscape: former Maryland assistant Mike Locksley is leaving his post as the offensive coordinator at Illinois to become the head coach at New Mexico. Locksley has done a terrific job getting Washington-area players to go to Illinois and I'm sure he'll make the effort to get them to Albuquerque. That said, will local kids want to travel to the desert southwest? (I'm guessing they will.) And will Illinois still get some of the D.C. area's top players to Champaign?
