Jarrett Visits VT For The First Time

Kyshoen Jarrett’s first ever visit to Virginia Tech was a good one, but was it good enough for him to stay committed to the Hokies? According to the East Stroudsburg South (Stroudsburg, PA) star cornerback, the answer is yes.

“I’m pretty solid,” Jarrett said. “I have a busy week and don’t really have time to check out anywhere else, but even if I did I’m solid on what I want to do. As of now, I’m solid and that’s not going to change. That won’t change on Signing Day. That won’t change in the summer, when I’m about to head off. I’m happy with my decision.”

He didn’t want to be the reason why I didn’t commit, but then I told him I had committed already. He gave me a lot of insight. He’s a real laid-back kid. Saturday was pretty planned out for me and my family. I hung out with Kyle Saturday night. I went to a track meet with Kyle. I hung out with most of the players. I did a lot.”

Speaking more about the players, Jarrett added, “The players were welcoming. They were letting me know that it is not easy there. I have to come in
