Jarrett closing in on new offers?

East Stroudsburg South junior cornerback Kyshoen Jarrett has had a big year in the Pennsylvania high school football ranks and he already holds four scholarship offers.

While he's pleased with the list of schools that have already extended offers he's still hoping for more. Based on the way things look right now, Jarrett might be close to watching his list grow.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect helped his squad to a 49-21 victory in the first round of the state playoffs against Liberty. Jarrett had a solid game, but that's nothing new. On the year he picked off three passes and forced two fumbles.

"I should have my highlight tape done soon," Jarrett told Rivals.com. "I'm going to make an official tape right after the season. There are some schools I want to send it out to, like Notre Dame, Miami, Rutgers, Pitt and maybe some others."

Akron, Illinois, Maryland and Pitt have already extended offers to the young defensive back. When a prospect has that many offers this early in the process it's a pretty good sign that he will have a lot more down the road.

Though he hasn't turned his attention to the recruiting process, Jarrett has been keeping his eyes open. He knows a good bit about several schools, and much of that is due to the fact that he has already attended two college games this year.

"At the beginning of the season I was at Rutgers to see them play Cincinnati. I was there with Sam Bergen, and we enjoyed that. Then I got to see Penn State play Ohio State just recently."

Though he has four offers and has visited two schools, Jarrett isn't ready to talk about favorites. He believes all of that will work itself out in due time.

"Honestly, I don't (have favorites)," he said. "I haven't put too much thought into it. I'm just letting everything happen and trying to stay focused on our season and on school as of right now. As far as recruiting and thinking about who I want to offer me, I haven't put much thought or focus into that. Once the season is over I'll sit down with my family and have a serious conversation with them."

Jarrett said academics will be a big factor in his decision, as will the coaching staff at each school that recruits him. Currently he wants to major in business management and minor in sports management.
