Georgia Military's Hewitt talks recruiting

With outstanding size and athleticism, Georgia Military S Neville Hewitt (6-2, 215) is an intriguing prospect. JCFootball.com caught up with the talented DB recently and he updated us on where things stand including which four-year school has become the first to extend him an offer...

"I have an offer from Marshall right now," Hewitt told JCFootball.com. "They are currently my only offer, but I'm getting recruited pretty hard by Middle Tennessee, Rutgers, Texas A&M and Georgia State too."

Hewitt is a physical specimen, measuring in at 6'2" and weighing 215 pounds while running a 4.5 forty.

As a freshman this past season, the talented safety prospect totaled nearly 50 tackles and had one interception from his free safety spot.

"I was at free safety last year, but this year they are moving me up closer to the line so I'll be at strong safety more this year," Hewitt said. "I prefer being up in the box more just because you can run and hit guys. I love being physical up there and making plays.

"At free safety, you have to run more and you can't be as physical. I'm going to have fun this year."

Hewitt prepped at Rockdale County (Conyers, Ga.) High School and was unable to qualify, so he decided to head to Georgia Military to get his academics as order.

"I didn't want to leave the state of Georgia, so that's the first reason I chose (GMC)," Hewitt noted. "I also had heard from my high school coaches that it was a great program and I thought it would be good to go to a military school just because of all the discipline it requires from you. That was definitely something I needed too."

Hewitt is on pace to graduate in March and he will have three years to play two following the 2012 football season.
