Another Top250 recruit commits to Pitt
2011 could potentially be the best class Dave Wannstedt has built at Pitt, and the group got stronger on Wednesday as East Stroudsburg cornerback Kyshoen Jarrett committed to the Panthers.
Jarrett, 5'11" 182, picked Pitt over offers from Penn State, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Stanford, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, Syracuse, Duke, and Vanderbilt. His final decision came down to Pitt and Penn State.
As a junior in 2009, Jarrett averaged 11.2 yards per carry on 53 rushing attempts and 17.3 yards per catch on 15 receptions. Pitt is recruiting him as a cornerback, and he has recorded five interceptions over the past two seasons.
By the time his high school career ends, Jarrett will have been a four-year starter for East Stroudsburg South, and he was named to the All-Mountain Valley Conference first team following each of the past two seasons.
Jarrett is ranked the No. 4 prospect in the state of Pennsylvania this year and he is the seventh Keystone State recruit to commit to Pitt, joining Pottsgrove defensive back Terrell Chestnut, Bishop McDevitt running back Jameel Poteat, Dallastown linebacker Ben Kline, Central Dauphin offensive lineman Artie Rowell, Clairton defensive end Desimon Green, and Woodland Hills cornerback Lafayette Pitts.
Jarrett is also the fifth Rivals250 prospect to commit to Pitt, along with Chestnut, Poteat, Paramus (NJ) Paramus Catholic defensive tackle Marquise Wright and Atco (NJ) Winslow Township receiver Bill Belton. This marks just the second time in the Wannstedt Era that Pitt has had five Rivals250 members. In the class of 2008, Pitt finished with five recruits in the Rivals250.
Pitt now has 15 commitments in the class of 2011. Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha tight end Sam Collura, Ramsey (NJ) Don Bosco quarterback Gary Nova, Sicklerville (NJ) Timber Creek linebacker Quinton Alston, Woodbridge (NJ) defensive end Max Issaka, Lakewood (Oh.) St. Edward defensive end Deonte Gibson, and Massillon (Oh.) Washington receiver Justin Olack have also committed to Pitt.
