Hewitt-Trussville gets another big transfer in top 10 state recruit


Quarterbacks aren’t the only position transferring to Hewitt-Trussville.

Pleasant Grove safety Myles Mason tweeted out the news on Thursday night that he was heading to Trussville.

Mason is a four-star Class of 2018 prospect ranked No. 10 overall in the state and No. 24 nationally at his position. The 6’2″, 185 lb. safety becomes the second notable transfer in the offseason for the Huskies after quarterback Paul Tyson came over from Mountain Brook. Hewitt also brought in Memphis quarterback signee Connor Adair from Mountain Brook before the 2016 season.

Pleasant Grove has made the playoffs each of the last five seasons but struggled in a 4-6 regular season outing with a first-round playoff exit in 2016. The Spartans played for the Class 5A state championship for the first time in 2014 when Mason was a Second Team All-State selection as a freshman.

Hewitt-Trussville is coming off their first ever 10-0 regular season but lost a stunner in the quarterfinals to Gadsden City in Josh Floyd’s third season. The Huskies’ only state finals appearance came in 1992 under Jack Wood.
