Darmstatter is a Complete TE

Jr. Jarret Darmstatter is another tight end who's recruitment is blowing up. He is currently up to 12 offers in which Rutgers is 1 of them. Apparently, his hard-nosed attitude along with his ability to block and catch passes makes him a true commodity to many collegiate programs around the nation. SOR spoke to the Barnegat (NJ) star last night to see if he has made any decisions about recruiting.

"My favorite game last season was our win over Holmdel. We had lost to them my sophomore year in double overtime and this year we came back and beat them pretty good. I can't wait for next season."

Jarrett Darmstatter had a pretty significant year last season. In 2008, the 6'4 241lb talent produced 75 tackles and 2 sacks from the defensive end position along with 20 catches and 3 TD's from the position he will most likely play in college; tight end. His performance on the field earned him the honor of being voted 1 of the 100 best Jr.s in the tri-state.

When asked where he would like to play on the next level, he mentioned, "I love everything about the game and both positions. It doesn't matter where I play. On offense, I like to block and go out for passes. I'm good at finding open areas to catch the ball. Defensively, I am good at getting off blocks and getting into the backfield."

Darmstatter has been exploding these past few months and has since become one of the more prolific recruits in the region. His latest offers have come from West Virginia, Boston College and Florida State. Amongst the other schools that have offered him are Rutgers, ECU, Syracuse, Tulane, Central Florida, Purdue, Iowa, Michigan State and Louisville. Out of the schools recruiting him, he has actually only been to Rutgers and ECU.

When asked of his RU impressions, he stated, "Rutgers is pretty good. I have spoken to Coach Susan in the past month and called Coach Schiano directly the other day. They want me to play tight end. They told me that they love how I play the game. I'm not sure what I am going to do, but I might go to Rutgers camp".

Jarrett claims to be enjoying the recruiting process. He plans to begin cutting down his list some time after the end of the summer. Location will play no part in his collegiate decision. His main concerns are getting a good education, and fitting in with the surroundings and players.

Darmstatter has goals which encompass getting himself better as well as his team and making it to the playoffs and hopefully states. He will have some help in that department in the form of his talented young sophomore QB, Nick Sandiacomo. "Nick is a good quarterback. Our favorite route is the choice route which is a 10 yard hit which can go either inside or out depending on the open area. We work that well together" said Jarret.

In the off-season Jarret participate in track in field where he runs the 100m (12.3), 200m (26.2), throws the shot put (41ft), and the javelin. He claims a 4.89 forty. SOR will keep you in-tuned.
