Recruiting: Cowboys Get First Commit of 2008
"They are working me out there in the off season, and tell me they want me to play there," said Sharp. "We'll see if it works out."
Kicking is what he does best and what the Cowboys are interested in him doing once he arrives in Stillwater. Last season he earned All-District 5A-4 honors by hitting 5-of-9 field goals, including a 52-yard three-pointer in the playoffs. He was 64-of-67 on extra points and knocked 75 percent of his kickoffs out of the end zone. As a punter he averaged 39.4 yards.
So what's up with the quick decision? "They were so friendly up there," said Sharp. "I could tell they really care about the student-athlete and they make sure that you graduate."
Sharp, who gained his kicking skills by playing select soccer in Texas through the eighth grade before concentrating on football and baseball, said he has no previous connections with Oklahoma State and saw the campus for the first time Saturday.
"I really liked it," he said. "They have great facilities and they are only going to be getting better. I'm locked in."
Sharp will arrive at OSU in the fall of 2008, when current kicker Jason Ricks and current punter Matt Fodge will both be beginning their senior seasons. It is believed that Sharp is picked out to be a kicker.
Sharp said he was also told that UTEP was interested but said Oklahoma State was the only offer he had at this time.
