It is possible that Sharp could have exceeded the rushing record already, but he has been held back. "Most of our wins are so big, he just doesn't get as many carries as we would like."
He almost set the Salina High Central mark for single-game rushing last week when he went off for 334 yards on only 17 carries with six touchdowns. "We probably should have given him the ball a couple more times. He only needed around 40 more yards for the record."
Sharp committed to KU a while back, he also had a written offer from Colorado State. "There were plenty of other schools showing major interest but Kansas is just a really good fit for Jake. They need some running backs so he might be able to help out immediately. Even if he can't help there right away, he has the ability to contribute on special teams. I really like Coach Mangino and his staff and they say they can use someone as quick as Jake."
There is no doubt the Jayhawks have a quality player heading to Lawrence. "I don't even know where to start when talking about Jake. He is just a tremendous talent. He has big-time speed. He has a time of 10.4 in the 100 meter and a 40 time of 4.4. He is also extremely powerful and sees the field real well. Jake is a threat every time he touches the ball."
Sharp carries a 3.8 core GPA.
