UCF is hosting and extending an offer to legacy recruit Joaquin Kavouklis as quarterback.

Joaquin Kavouklis, a freshman quarterback recruit, has had an eventful spring football window, which includes transferring to Tarpon Springs (Fla.) High School after a successful season at Clearwater (Fla.) Academy International. Kavouklis, who hails from a family with a deep connection to Tarpon Springs, received a scholarship offer from UCF, a school that holds significance for his father, Emmanuel Kavouklis.

Emmanuel Kavouklis, who played for UCF 30 years ago as an offensive lineman, is thrilled to see his son receive an offer from the same program. He praised Coach Hinshaw for being competitive and brutally honest, qualities he believes will help develop and push his son to succeed. Kavouklis expressed his admiration for the direction UCF’s program is heading and the impressive facilities and coaching staff the school offers.

The Kavouklis family visited UCF earlier in the spring, and Joaquin was impressed by the campus and facilities, describing the experience as amazing. He sees UCF as a program on the rise and a potential destination worth considering for his future college career. In addition to UCF, Arkansas has also extended an offer to Kavouklis, with several other programs showing increased interest in the young quarterback.

As a freshman in 2023, Joaquin Kavouklis proved his talent on the field by throwing for nearly 1,600 yards and recording double-digit touchdowns. His performance at the Rivals Camp Series stop in Miami further solidified his reputation as a standout performer.

The Kavouklis family is excited about the opportunities and interest coming Joaquin’s way, with UCF’s offer marking a significant moment in their journey. Emmanuel Kavouklis sees this as a full-circle moment, with his son following in his footsteps at UCF, a program that holds a special place in their hearts. The family is grateful for the support and recognition Joaquin is receiving and eagerly anticipates the next chapter in his football career.
