College Decision Announced by Locklan Hewlett, 3-Star QB from St. Augustine

Horns up, baby!

I’m excited to announce my commitment to the University of South Florida. I’m excited to construct this class up for the Bulls. I’m excited to proceed to construct a powerful relationship with this coaching staff.

The recruiting process has been crazy on all sides. From all of the coaches who recruited me to the relationships I’ve built with other recruits and other coaches, it’s been so much.

I would like to thank all of the coaches who recruited me in the course of the process, and my family for giving me nothing but support. I would like to thank all my teammates and coaches at St. Augustine for making me a greater person and a greater player.

Having the ability to lock in my decision and be confident is a tremendous feeling. I’m excited to announce this and have the option to deal with my senior season coming up.

I absolutely desired to announce before my senior yr. I don’t need to have any distractions or stress on where I would like to go. I made my decision as soon as possible and I made the appropriate alternative. USF showed me repeatedly how vivid of a future they’ve.

The coaching staff at USF was the primary thing that stuck out to me. I had a terrific conversation with Brock Purdy and his development with that coaching staff. Coach Gordon and coach Golesh were each his coaches at Iowa State. He said the primary thing to look for is a spot that may develop you because it would repay when you desire to go to the league. And that staff has done nothing but develop quarterbacks.

St. Augustine's quarterback Locklan Hewlett (11) signals for a receiver as he scrambles late in the first quarter. The St. Augustine Yellow Jackets traveled to Nease High School's Panther Stadium for Friday night's Saint Johns County high school football rivalry game on October 6, 2023.

I committed during an unofficial visit. It was the second practice of the spring. I already knew getting in that USF was the alternative I used to be going to make. But the best way the visit went, the best way the team does things, and the energy the team brings to practice was the icing on the cake for me.

The response I got from the staff once I told them I used to be committing is the best feeling on the planet. It made me feel so special to them. It was like I used to be dreaming; there was a lot excitement. The offensive coordinator was absolutely thrilled. Coach Golesh literally slammed his hand on his desk in excitement. It was amazing. After that, you understand you made the appropriate alternative.

The facilities they’re constructing right away are unbelievable. The stadium they’re constructing right away is unbelievable. That was something that matters as well. The nutrition they’ve there’s amazing, and Tampa is a stupendous area.

The primary thing for me is the staff and the assumption they’ve in me and the support system they’ve there.

Staying in Florida didn’t play much in my alternative, however it’s the icing on the cake. It’s awesome to remain in my home state.

I’m fired as much as be a Bull!
