Sharpley gets offer from LSU

Evan Sharpley is one of the top quarterback prospects in the country and he has a scholarship offer from the defending national champs under his belt.

LSU coaches Nick Saban and Bobby Williams both enjoyed a lot of success recruiting at Michigan State and now they are trying to lure the No. 1 quarterback in Michigan down to the bayou.

"I hadn't been getting any mail from them so the offer was kind of unexpected," said the 6-2, 200-pounder who passed for 1,950 yards and 19 touchdowns last season. "My coach talked to coach Saban and Saban told him they wanted to give me an offer."

Sharpley took an unofficial visit to Baton Rouge during his spring break to check out the campus and its surroundings.

"I was very impressed," Sharpley told Tiger Rag. "It was awesome. I got to go to a baseball game and see some things. I also got to talk to coach Saban, coach Williams and coach Fisher. I saw Tiger Stadium and it was awesome."

Along with LSU's offer he also has offers from Iowa, Wisconsin, Central Michigan and Eastern Michigan.

While Sharpley grew up a Michigan fan the Wolverines have yet to offer. They are showing a lot of interest along with Michigan State, Purdue, Stanford and Notre Dame.

Is there a leader at this stage of the game?

"I'm pretty wide open right now," he said.

When asked what makes him standout on the field Sharpley replied, "I think I have a pretty strong arm. I work a lot on my accuracy and try to put the ball in the right spot for my receivers."
