Hokies to make cut for top target?

One of Virginia Tech's top targets is planning to narrow his list in the near future. The Hokies are one of many offers out for the prospect, but where does Tech stand at this time?

"I'm not visiting anywhere before the season starts," East Stroudsburg (Pa.) East Stroudsburg South cornerback Kyshoen Jarrett said. "I'm going to make my top five in about two weeks and then I'm going to schedule my officials right away."

Will Virginia Tech make the cut?

"That's like asking Mark Ingram if he won the Heisman," he said. "Yeah, Virginia Tech is.

"I'm saying Virginia Tech will make the cut, what defensive back wouldn't want to take an official there or have them in their top list?"

Jarrett discussed why the Hokies will make the cut despite offering just a couple weeks ago.

"I don't really know, but I'm definitely feeling them off the bat and feeling the defensive back coach (Torrian Gray) there," he stated. "He keeps it real."

The No. 4 prospect in Pennsylvania discussed how the interest from the Hokies, a team that rarely recruits the Keystone State anymore came about in the first place.

"I asked my head coach to contact them for a reason, because when you think about Virginia Tech you think about the defensive backs they produce, I also like that they play in a good conference in the ACC and have history there too, so that's the reason I got interested in them. That got me to this point," he said. "It helped my coach knows someone that knows most of their staff and that helped to get their interest. But, they don't really recruit my area, so it's odd to have them talking to me and have as much interest as they do."

Meanwhile, asked if anyone else would definitely make the cut, Jarrett responded.

"I don't know exactly yet."

Jarrett holds numerous other scholarships including Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Stanford, Virginia, Wisconsin, Vanderbilt, Duke and Syracuse.
