Big-Time Recruit Jarrett Talks PSU Offer

The past few months has seen Kyshoen Jarrett's recruitment soar, as the Pennsylvania player now holds 15 offers - including a recent one from Penn State-and is set for more.

Up to 15 offers already, East Stroudsburg's Kyshoen Jarrett is fast becoming a national recruit. The Pennsylvania cornerback is holding scholarships in hand from a number of ACC, Big East and Big Ten schools.

"Things are going really well right now. I'm really humbled by all the schools I've been hearing from," Jarrett told "Right now, it's been a lot of fun."

Jarrett, who was returning from a recruiting event at Rutgers, said that he is in no rush to make a decision. In fact, Jarrett said that he might go all the way till after his senior season is done or perhaps wait until signing day to make a formal announcement. Things have been picking up for Jarrett over the past few weeks, including an offer from Michigan.

But he doesn't have to go far from home, he says, to be flattered with big-time interest.

"The offers of programs like Pitt and Penn State are great and mean a lot," Jarrett said. "Those are the in-state schools and they're both big-time programs."

The cornerback prospect, who was recently nominated to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, said that Pitt was the first program to offer him and that he likes what he has seen of the school. The other Pennsylvania school in the mix for Jarrett, the Nittany Lions, are also an attractive offer.

"They're a big-time program who are always in it for the Big Ten and the national championship," Jarrett said of Penn State. "They've got the tradition and all the history. ‘Joe Pa' and all that."

Then he shared his thoughts on the school.

"It is a big honor to get an offer from Penn State, one of the biggest programs around. I definitely will be learning more about them," he said. "They're a great school all around and they're a household name around here."

There is no top list for Jarrett yet, who says all programs are even in his mind as of right now. He does expect his offer list to grow and expand over the next few weeks with possible offer from Virginia Tech and West Virginia coming in.

As for summer plans, Jarrett hopes to camp at West Virginia on July 10th and check out the scene at Morgantown. He said that the West Virginia staff wants to see him in person and he is hopeful of an offer. In addition, Jarrett plans on taking a trip to Notre Dame, a program that has begun to show more interest in him. Finally, he plans on tacking a trip to Blacksburg to check-in on the Hokies, and perhaps reel in an offer there.
