San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills defensive end Jamaar Jarrett (6-5, 240), has added another Pac-10 scholarship offer.

"Arizona State was my most recent offer," said Jarrett. "I've got six now. Oregon, Colorado, San Diego State, Ole Miss and Arizona are the others."

Jarrett said that five other Pac-10 schools have been staying in correspondence with him and that post-spring, he could find himself adding to his total. "Washington, Washington State, USC, Cal and UCLA are some of the schools I've been talking with," said Jarrett. "USC said I need to go to their lineman camp and they'll evaluate me more. The rest all said they're evaluating me, too."

Jarrett said that while he doesn't have one clear-cut school in front, one school is standing out to him. "I'd say that Oregon is standing out, because they've offered me and I like them," said Jarrett. "But honestly, I don't really have a leader at this point."

Jarrett first caught our eye last spring at the Scout Combine in Los Angeles, where he was one of the standouts among a solid group of defensive linemen, made more impressive by the fact he was only a sophomore. Jarrett will again be at the Scout Combine this weekend.

While Jarrett is hoping that good showings in the spring will garner more attention – and offers – he said he'll take his time with his decision making. "I think I'm just going to wait and see what all of my options are," said Jarrett. "I don't want to commit too soon and not get some other offers."

Last season, Jarrett had nine sacks for the Grizzlies and earned all-league honors.

He said he is already a full qualifier.
