Former Wales U20 international Steffan Evans has agreed a new contract with the Scarlets.
The 22-year-old has started all but one match for the region this season, scoring five tries in 17 games.
Evans could make his 50th Scarlets appearance on Sunday against Saracens, the club his back three team-mate Liam Williams will join at the end of the season.
"I've grown up supporting the region and feel it's a real honour to be able to wear the famous jersey and to represent the club," said Evans, who can play at full-back and on the wing.
"I'm looking forward to continuing my development within the region over the next few years and hopefully one day push for international honours but my focus at the moment is the Scarlets and hopefully making the top four in the PRO12."
Scarlets head coach Wayne Pivac added: "Steff has had a great start to the season and has played a lot of rugby for us.
"He's an exciting attacking player but has also put the time in on the training field on areas of the game that he needed to work on.
"It's pleasing to see young local guys like Steff wanting to commit their future to the region and we look forward to see him continue to grow as a player."
