Jarrett De-Commits from Oregon, Pledges ASU

There was only one good surprise in stored for the Sun Devils on signing day, but it was a significant one. Jamaar Jarrett, a 6-5 240 defensive end from San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills high school switched his commitment over from the Ducks. The 35th best defensive end in the nation fills one of the pressing needs of ASU's 2008 recruiting class.

Jamaar Jarrett began his recruiting trips at Oregon on 11/3, a school he initially committed to on 1/14. After visiting ASU on 12/15, he was scheduled to take visits to California and Washington, and reportedly took a last minute to Colorado this past weekend. Thus, the writing was on the wall that his commitment to Oregon was on shaky ground.

Following his trip to Tempe back in December his head coach, Chris Hauser, told Devils Digest: "he had a very good visit at ASU but he needs to see the ‘world' and see what all is out there. I don't think he'll be making a decision anytime soon. He will take all his visits."

During his senior season, Jarrett had 42 tackles and four sacks and helped the Grizzlies reach the CIF-San Diego Section finals. Most of his contributions came on the offensive line.
