Athlete Dwayne Jarrett took an unofficial visit to Virginia this weekend and came away impressed with what he saw. Are the Cavs at the top of his list?
"I was real impressed with everything I saw at Virginia," said Jarrett. "It wasn't the first time I had been there, so I was really comfortable around the players and coaches. I got to see a lot of impressive things."
One of the main criticisms of Coach Al Groh's squad this year is the lack of a consistent deep threat. In a 19-14 loss against Florida State on Saturday it was painfully obvious that the Cavaliers are in desperate need of an athlete that can spread out wide and beat the defense deep. Jarrett would fit that criteria.
"They need a lot of help at wide receiver," Jarrett laughed. "They have a great system and some good players in place at most positions. But one of the reasons they're recruiting me so hard is because they don't have too many guys that can really make the defense worry about the long pass. I think there would be a lot of playing time if I decided to go to UVA."
Are the Cavs at the top of Jarrett's list?
"Virginia and Iowa are probably my top two right now," he said. "Pitt, Syracuse and Southern Cal are three others I like, but I'm not as sure about those. I know for a fact that Virginia and Iowa are up there at the top, so you could say they're my favorites."
Jarrett's visit to Virginia this weekend was unofficial, but he has scheduled an official visit to Charlottesville for the weekend of December 12th. The 6-foot-5, 195-pound athlete from New Brunswick, N.J. has led his team to a perfect 6-0 record thus far. He has 20 catches for more than 400 yards and 13 total touchdowns.
Jarrett said he will make his decision just after taking all of his official visits.
