New Brunswick (NJ) wide receiver Dwayne Jarrett makes his second official visit of the recruiting process this weekend, when he travels to Southern California. This will be Jarrett’s first visit to SC, and he is looking forward to it.
“I’m going to USC this weekend,” said Jarrett, who will be making the visit with his mother. “I’m excited to see what it’s like. I’ve never been to California before. I know one thing…it’s going to be sunny (laughs).”
Southern California is one of Jarrett’s top two schools right now, with Virginia being the other. He does want to make all of his official visits, however, before announcing a decision.
“I’m still going to take the rest of my visits,” said Jarrett. “I do really like Virginia and Southern California. Those two are pretty much equal right now. USC is doing real good this year as a team. I like Coach Carroll and the rest of the coaching staff. The academics are good too. At UVA, I really like the coaches. Virginia has a great atmosphere and great fans. They have great academics and the campus is beautiful.”
Jarrett admits USC and UVA are ahead of the other three schools he will visit – Pittsburgh, Syracuse, and Iowa. He has already been to Iowa for an official visit.
“I would say Virginia and USC are ahead of the others,” said Jarrett. “Pitt is still in my mind, but I think as time goes on, that I’m starting to lean more towards USC and Virginia.”
Jarrett’s official visit to Virginia is scheduled for December 12th. He has been to Virginia twice previously and, though he has a good feel for the school, is fairly sure he will make his official visit. His schedule could change depending on how New Brunswick does in the playoffs.
“We might have the state championship game on the weekend of December 6th, and if we do I’d just move my Syracuse visit (scheduled for 12/06) back one week,” said Jarrett. “Then I’d have to reschedule my visit to Virginia, although I have already been there enough times to get a feel for how everything is. The coaches really want me to go down there one more time – I guess so they can wine and dine me (laughs) – so I probably will go there on an official visit.”
Both USC and Virginia have offenses Jarrett could see himself playing in. Both schools envision him as a coveted game-breaking receiver.
“USC has a more open offense,” said Jarrett. “They use four receivers a lot....
