-Attended multiple National Team camps and played on the U20 squad
Overview and Highlights
Jarrett’s combination of speed and creativity make her one of the most exciting players in college soccer. Excelling at using her quickness to produce chances for her teammates, Jarrett has already added three assists to her career total of thirteen this season.
The right footed winger is creating opportunities at an elite rate for the University of Virginia. Against top flight teams (Duke, Clemson, and Florida State) in the shortened 2020-2021 season Jarrett provided an average of two key passes per game, with a high of three against top ranked Florida State. For comparison, the winger with the most key passes in the NWSL currently this season is Mal Pugh, and she is also averaging two per 90. Chance creation is a valuable skill set, and plays a large role in win rates among soccer teams. It’s no coincidence that the three teams leading the NWSL in created chances are also the top three teams in the league.
Jarrett’s key passes are often preceded by a successful dribble that earns her the space to play a ball to a teammate. Against those same teams mentioned previously, she averaged four successful dribbles per game. Although it isn’t a stat that points directly to stardom, it shows that she uses her quickness effectively. Most importantly, her dribbles create space and opportunities for teammates.
