The Verdict:It's often tempting for analysts to overlook the production of a back like Jarvis, who at 5-foot-5 enters his senior season as one of the smallest feature backs in major college football. While he certainly benefits from his small size in Kent State's zone-read offensive scheme (making it difficult for linebackers to pick him up coming out of the mesh), Jarvis is still a tremendously gifted back who brings unquestionable versatility to the Golden Flashes offense. Not only has Jarvis accounted for over 4000 total yards during his three-year career for the Flashes, but the diminutive back brings cat like quickness and game changing ability to a program which is otherwise known only as being the Alma mater of a one Lou Holtz. He has tremendouse field vision, and his quickness and ability to hit the cutback lanes is unmatched within the MAC. Injured during part of 2008, Kent State took a major step back without Jarvis in the lineup last year, but could be a player in the MAC this year if the former first team All-Conference back can get back to his 2007 form, in which he rushed for 1669 yards and snagged 23 passes.
