Jarrett Jr. (Casper Coll. athletics)

Former Kennedy standout Don “DJ” Jarrett Jr. will continue to play college basketball, just at a higher level.
This time, he goes from Wyoming (Casper College) to South Dakota and the NCAA Division II University of Sioux Falls. Jarrett played for Casper, a National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association program, for the past two seasons.
USF head coach Chris Johnson said this about Jarrett, a 6-foot-4 guard.
“DJ (Jarrett) is a big guard with nice size who can really knock down shots from the perimeter,” Johnson said in a story on the team website. “DJ’s ability to stretch the floor and create space will benefit our team.”
Jarrett played in 32 games for 24-9 Casper last season and averaged 9.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists. He hit for double digits in points 15 times, including a career-high of 22. Jarrett put his range on display in several games, knocking down at least three 3-pointers in eight different contests.
