According to New Brunswick Head Coach Jim Quinn, wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett is “like the Randy Moss of the high school level because he can run and can outjump anybody.”

Few can argue. At 6-5, 200 pounds, Jarrett is a fluid and fast runner. He possesses a 38 inch vertical leap. As a junior, he used his remarkable size and athleticism to haul in 40 receptions for 956 yards and 17 touchdowns. He has continued his success this season despite facing constant double teams. Through six games (NB is 6-0), he has 13 touchdown receptions and estimates around 300-400 yards receiving.

“I’m going to visit USC on November 22nd, Pittsburgh on November 29th, Syracuse on December 5th, and my last visit will be to Virginia on December 12th,” said Jarrett. “I think I’ll definitely be able to decide shortly after that visit.”

He has already been to Iowa and visited Virginia unofficially for the Florida State game. Jarrett noted that this was his second time visiting UVA.

“The official visit with Iowa was comparable with the one to Virginia,” said Jarrett. “I had a good time at Iowa and at Virginia. Really, the only difference was that Iowa paid for everything and I had to pay for myself at UVA.”

Jarrett stated three schools that are strong at the top of his list right now. One school currently has the edge over the rest.

“I feel strongly about UVA, Iowa, and USC,” said Jarrett. “Virginia probably has the
