Jarrett up to 10 offers

Cornerback Kyshoen Jarrett of East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania has been picking up offers at a rapid rate over the past month, and now he's up to ten.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound prospect has no shortage of interest from schools and that has started to translate into more offers of late.

"I'm up to ten offers now," Jarrett said. "Over the past month or so I've received offers from Michigan State, Michigan, Connecticut, Syracuse and Virginia just yesterday.

"I'll talk to those schools for a couple of days and then they'll offer. Michigan State saw my tape and really liked what I could do. I guess they liked the kind of kid I am and they offered me. Same thing with Syracuse. I had been talking to Connecticut for a while."

Offers from all of the schools are appreciated, but some in particular have caused Jarrett to reflect on just how far he has come.

"Some of the offers make you realize how much hard work you've put in," he said. "A school like Michigan and the history they've had. Michigan State's last couple of years. Those types of things you really take notice of."

At one point Jarrett intended to graduate in December and enroll in college early. That is no longer his plan, so he will wait out the recruiting process for a while.

Jarrett was at Rutgers yesterday to take in one of the Scarlet Knights' practices. He enjoyed that trip and plans on taking more.

"Yesterday was just the start of going to colleges for me," he said. "I went to practice and just watched them (Rutgers) do that so I'll know how they do things. They worked on pretty much everything -- special teams, defense, stripping the ball. It was good to see what it would be like for me in a couple of years."

Jarrett said he will probably return to Rutgers on Friday. On Saturday he will go to Connecticut.
