It was a big year for Kyshoen Jarrett, a junior cornerback from Pennsylvania.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound defensive back from East Stroudsburg (Pa.) South helped his squad to an 11-2 record and the second round of the playoffs. On the year he recorded 43 tackles and four interceptions, in addition to forcing two fumbles. Despite his personal success and his team's impressive record, Jarrett isn't satisfied.
"We did pretty well, and it was the best record we've had in a long time," he explained. "But it was kind of a hard loss. We went into that game with very high expectations, but everything doesn't go your way. We're not going to slouch next year. We're going to come back stronger.
"I went back and watched some of my tapes. I feel like I played well. I locked down some good receivers. I had to play man against a couple of receivers all game and that worked out well for me. I felt that I reached my expectations."
Though he could conceivably contribute as a running back or on special teams, Jarrett wants to stay in the secondary when he reaches college.
He already holds offers from Akron, Illinois, Maryland and Pitt, and that list could grow before long.
"I've been talking to Miami and Rutgers," he said. "I know some schools have told my coach that they're highly interested. I just haven't been able to get their numbers, so I don't know how much there really is with them.
"Recently I sent out a midseason tape to Rutgers, Pitt, Miami, Notre Dame, Stanford, Clemson and Syracuse."
Jarrett said next year he will be attending a junior day at Penn State, as he has been keeping in contact with their coaching staff. He wants to spend as much time as possible on the Maryland campus, and he will attend a junior day at Rutgers as well.
He went on to say he does not have any favorites at this stage in the recruiting process.
