Four-star Pa. Corner Picks Up Va. Tech Offer

Kyshoen Jarrett

Four-star cornerback Kyshoen Jarrett of East Stroudsburg (Pa.) High recently trimmed his list of suitors to nine schools, but that was before Virginia Tech said it would offer. So, do the Hokies now factor into his decision? Jarrett spoke with VTInsider.com to give his thoughts on the offer, and if it will make a difference in his recruitment.

Four-star East Stroudsburg (Pa.) High cornerback Kyshoen Jarrett met with his high school coach last week and trimmed his list of schools to nine.

Friday, he added one to the list.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Jarrett is now listing Virginia Tech after he was told a written offer was heading his way.

"I don't have the offer in front of me, but they told me they offered," Jarrett said. "They're getting a look. They're in my top 10 right now."

The other schools on Jarrett's list are Connecticut, Illinois, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Stanford, Virginia and Wisconsin, but he is intrigued about the Hokies because of their history, and they ability to send defensive backs to the NFL.

"I know the head coach (Frank Beamer) has been there for a while, and he's a great mentor," Jarrett said. "They play pretty good football, and they're in the ACC. Their defensive backs are really good."

Jarrett is excited about the offer, but his summer schedule is pretty full so he doesn't think he will get to Blacksburg, Va., in the next month to tour the camps.

However, he will eventually make it there.

"I know I'm going to take a trip out there, but I don't know when that will be," Jarrett said. "I think it will be an official visit."

One of the interesting parts of Jarrett's recruitment, and his list, is the cross-section of schools to offer him.

He is looking at academic first, but added it doesn't hurt being a perennial top 15 program.

"I look at the schools in general, and then if they're a top 10, top 15 school, then that just adds to it," Jarrett said. "You look at the football, in general, at first, and then you look and see if they're a top 10, top 15 team every year."
