Jarrett Hardnett was a member of a very solid Woodlawn High defense, along with teammate and college prospect Winston Burnette. The 6-2, 220-pound Hardnett played MLB for the 2007 season, but due to depth at defensive end had to play on the edge. Most college recruiters view Jarrett as a middle linebacker, because of his size and speed.
"I had to play on the edge at DE this season because that's where coach need me to play, said Hardnett." "Coach moved me around on defense to create mismatches and disrupt the offenses. I ran a 4.6 forty this year, so I'm fast enough to linebacker in college."
Hardnett visited Louisiana for the UTEP game, what did he think of the coaches and facilities?
"I thought the weight room, indoor practice facility and the playing surface, said Jarrett." "ULL really has a nice program; I like what they are doing with the football program."
What did the coaches have to say about their interest in Jarrett Hardnett?
"Coach Rebowe told me that they are looking at outside linebackers and that they return three scholarship athletes at middle, so right now they don't have a scholarship available for my position, Hardnett said." "I'm going to send them some highlight film for coach to look at soon."
What other programs have interest in Hartnett's services?
"I've heard from Louisiana Tech, Central Arkansas, Southern and Auburn, Jarrett said." "Auburn doesn't have any scholarships right now, but they told me to that if anything opens up, they will contact me. Louisiana Tech, Central Arkansas and Southern all want me to come in for visits."
Jarrett Hardnett scored an 18 on his first ACT test and maintains a 3.0 GPA in his core.
