Navarro's Jolivet is a player to watch
"This offseason I've been working a lot on my technique and knowing where the quarterback is going to be when he sets up. If you know the point he's going to be at, it's much easier to put pressure on him."
As a senior Central High School in Westbrook, Texas, Jolivet was hearing from some schools, but he figured out pretty quickly he wasn't going to be able to qualify, so he started looking at the different JUCO programs in the state and it became obvious to him where he needed to go.
"Navarro was number one in the nation," Jolivet said with a chuckle. "That was all I needed to see, but then when I met with the coaches and talked to them, I know it was a great fit for me."
As a freshman last season, Jolivet saw all of his reps at the weakside defensive end spot and managed to post 31 tackles and four sacks and that, to go along with his long arms and 4.6 speed, is what has at least two schools interested in what he brings to the table.
"Right now the two schools I've been hearing from are Minnesota and New Mexico," Jolivet said. "My coaches have said that a few other schools have been asking for film and stuff, but so far I haven't heard from those schools.
"I'm interested in anyone that needs me and I hope I have some offers to choose from in the future."
Jolivet is on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
