Bio: 
Two-year starter who earned First Team All-Ivy honors in each of those seasons. Led Brown with 69 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, eight sacks and six forced fumbles in 2017 to earn an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Led the team with 18.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles and made 65 tackles as a junior. Named Honorable Mention All-Ivy and recorded 34 tackles (6.5 for loss) and 2.5 sacks in 2015.
Pos: 
Instinctive, hard-working linebacker with limited athleticism. Quickly locates the ball and displays good change of direction and pursues down the line to make plays. Tough to knock off his feet, breaks down well and effectively uses his hands. Hustles and gives effort in all areas.
Neg: 
Possesses average closing burst and overall speed. Easily ridden from his angle of attack.
Analysis: 
Jarvis is a hard-working linebacker who plays smart football but comes with limited speed and quickness. He’s a potential nickel linebacker who would be best standing over tackle but must prove his worth on special teams this summer.
