Senior Garret Guillemette has committed to play baseball at USC. The Friars’ catcher announced his commitment on Twitter saying, “God works in mysterious ways! Excited to start my new journey at the University of Southern California.”
Guillemette was attracted to USC because of the tradition the school has sharing, “To be able to be a graduate from USC puts me ahead of most people and it will allow me to get jobs or opportunities that other people might not be afforded.” He went on to say, “I fell in love with the campus and felt like the coaches had respect for me and the way I played. USC has always been a dream school.”
Guillemette first committed to Oregon as a sophomore then reopened his recruitment following the coaching change for the Ducks earlier this summer.
A 4-year varsity letterman for the Friars, Guillemette is a 2x All-Trinity League selection with his senior season yet to be played. He has also been chosen to play in the Area Code Games twice and selected OC Register Baseball Player of the Week.
Coach Gilbert shared his excitement saying, “Garret is one of the best catchers in his class. He has been a huge part of our program for four years. He made us better when he showed up on campus as a freshman and has been one of the best players in Southern California during the past three years. His talent and competitive edge is what separates him from most players his age.” Coach Gilbert continued, “He should step in next year and have an opportunity to be an impact player for USC as a freshman. I know coach Gill is excited to have him and we are really happy for Garret and look forward to watching him develop over the next couple years at USC. He has a bright future!”
Guillemette, who plans to study Sports Management at USC, is also involved in Select Choir and the Asylum at Servite.
In closing, Guillemette shared, “Thank you Coach Gilbert, Page, and Lappin for supporting me and allowing me to play for you guys. Your guidance has made me the player I am today and I am sincerely grateful.”
Servite would like to congratulate Garret on his commitment and wish him the best of luck as he finishes his senior season and embarks on his college career.
