Sharpe Holds Two

Destrehan offensive lineman Noland Sharpe reports a pair of early offers, and he talks about his recruitment inside.

Noland Sharpe reports offers from Tulane and Mississippi State, and he's hearing from several additional programs.

"USC, Alabama, Stanford, Oregon, Tennessee, Georgia Tech, LSU, Purdue and Louisiana Tech are all talking to me," said Sharpe.

"I'm being recruited as either an offensive guard or a center. I'm going to a lot of camps this summer. I'm going to Alabama camp. I talked to my mom, and I'm planning on committing somewhere during the summer."

Sharpe has an early top three.

"Alabama, Tennessee, and I would probably say Oregon," he stated. "I like how those teams run behind the guard a lot. I like to pull and be around wherever the ball is at."

The 6-foot-2, 260-pounder squats 475, bench presses 300, and runs a 5.0 in the 40-yard dash.

He'll be opening holes this fall for four-star WR Rickey Jefferson, who carries the football occasionally for the Wildcats.

"He's always been dominant," said Sharpe of his teammate. "He's been dominant since we were little kids. I've played with him my whole life. He's always had the confidence and the swagger.

"When he fell down last year (Jefferson tore his ACL during the '11 season), everybody knew he was going to get right back up."

Sharpe gave sophomore starting QB Donovan Isom high marks.

"He has a lot of heart," said Sharpe. "He's always out here on the turf, putting in work. He's in it for the team, not just himself. He loves the game."
