A product of St. Augustine (Fla.) High School, class of 2025 quarterback Locklan Hewlett received an offer from Miami on May 19 after Hurricanes offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Shannon Dawson watched Hewlett throw after one of his spring practices.

Hewlett described this in-state offer as “super surreal” in an interview with LifeWallet Sports.

“Miami is obviously a big school in Florida so all my friends are super excited about it,” Hewlett said. “Obviously I’ve known about Miami my whole life, and it was super surreal.”

Hewlett’s recruitment has heated up this spring with new offers from high-major programs like Texas A&M, Arizona and Illinois. Wake Forest, which was one of the first Division I schools to offer Hewlett, has remained on the 6-foot-1, 178-pound signal-caller’s radar.

“They came in early. They saw what some other schools didn’t as early, which definitely stands out because they came in so soon and [Wake Forest] has shown interest in me since my freshman year and that stands out. And they recruited me really hard, and that’s what I want, so I definitely want the school that has the most interest in me and that has the best fit for me.”

Hewlett has taken two unofficial visits to Wake Forest in the past two months. He also recently visited North Carolina and plans on taking additional visits this summer to Miami, Texas A&M and LSU.

The Player:

Hewlett is an accurate quarterback that throws with great anticipation. He completed 58% of his passes last season, throwing for 2,126 yards, 23 touchdowns and just six interceptions.

The rising junior, who wants to put on 10 to 12 pounds this offseason, says that a strength of his is his “playmaking ability. I can always extend the play. As a play breaks down, I’ll be able to make something happen outside of the pocket.”
