Locke is a former four-star prospect out of Owings Mills, Maryland for the 2018 recruiting class. He was the No. 3 player out of Maryland for the cycle and received offers from Michigan, Ohio State, Providence, and Xavier to go with Florida.
In three years with the Gators, Locke has appeared in 92 career games with 79 starts, including 24 starts in the 2020-21 season. Locke has career averages of 10.1 points and 2.4 rebounds per game and is a 40% shooter from three-point range.
A player of Locke’s experience and shooting ability will likely be in high demand, so it will be interesting to see if his Maryland roots play a factor in his decision-making process.
