Jarrett hit .325/?/.466 as the starting shortstop for FSU in 1992, posting the best average on the #9 team in the nation.

[2] He hit .282/?/.394 with 13 steals in 1994 and FSU went to the 1994 College World Series. He had little shot at All-ACC with Garciaparra still present. [3] He set the NCAA record with 802 career assists. [4]

Moving up to the Asheville Tourists in 1995, he hit .235/.338/.262 and fielding .991 at 2B. He split 1996 between the Salem Avalanche (.225/.290/.276 in 38 G) and New Haven Ravens (.195/.257/.250 in 56 G). He was back with the same teams in 1997 - .303/.349/.356 in 88 games for New Haven and .160/.192/.160 in 9 games for Salem. In 1998, he batted .238/.289/.275 for the Ravens, fielding .952 at short to end his pro career. He had batted .242/.310/.283 with 142 runs and 106 RBI in 488 games in the minors, fielding .965 in 213 games at SS, .982 in 180 at 2B and .920 in 69 at 3B.

He was head coach of the University of Notre Dame from 2020-2022, winning ACC Coach of the Year in 2021 and taking the team to the 2022 College World Series (their first CWS trip in 20 years).
