Jarrett 100%

About a week ago Kyle Jarrett tested out his knee in the first competitive football event since tearing his MCL three weeks into his junior football season. The Wake Forest commit attended the Shrine Bowl Combine held in Jamestown (N.C.).

"The injury is going great," said Kyle Jarrett. "I ran a 4.5 today in the forty. I'm done with physical therapy. I'm definitely 100-percent."

After running a 4.53-second 40-yard dash, Jarrett went on to bench 185 pounds 23 times and vertically jumped 27.6 inches. He measured in at 6-foot-1 ½ and 211 pounds.

Jarrett, who committed to the Demon Deacons last August prior to this injury, states that his pledge remains firm especially with the recent verbal commitment from his teammate and best friend John Stamper.

"I'm pretty firm in my commitment," said Jarrett. "My best friend John Stamper committed there about two weeks ago, so I'm definitely pretty firm on that."

Additionally, the Demon Deacons' staff stayed loyal to Jarrett during his injury.

"Wake is a great school – I love them," said Jarrett. "They've been with me through the whole process."

Given its proximity, Jarrett was able to attend almost every Wake Forest spring practice. During his stays, the staff kept him informed of their intentions once he enrolls at Wake Forest.

"They are looking at me for strong-side linebacker or strong safety," said Jarrett. "They're talking about not even redshirting me."

In just three games of play Jarrett totaled 33 tackles during his junior season at Clemmons (N.C.) West Forsyth. He also saw time at wide out. As a sophomore he made 108 tackles and 12 sacks and earned All Conference honors.
