The Recruiting Scene: Locust prepped at Suncoast High School in Riviera Beach, Florida and knew he wasn't going to qualify for a D-1 program, so he accepted an offer to play at Florida A&M, but after a semester there he decided to head to California to join a former teammate at Cerritos. Arizona State, Kansas State, Texas A&M, and Louisville all expressed interest, but he narrowed his list to Nevada and NC State in January. Following an official visit to NC State, he committed to the Wolfpack. Locust will have three years to play two seasons.
