Canes offer Jacksonville OL

The Hurricanes have one of the nation's top offensive line classes already. That's not stopping them from adding to it. Read on to learn more about the latest offensive line prospect to get offered.

David Sharpe was recently offered by the Hurricanes

6-foot-7, 280 pound offensive tackle prospect from Providence HS in Jacksonville

He grew up a basketball player, and has only been playing football for a few years now. He has one year of varsity experience, and it was at left tackle.

He admits growing up a Florida fan, and they were the first school he saw. He went to their game against LSU last fall.

"My favorite school was Florida when I was growing up," Sharpe said. "They are pretty close to home, some of my family likes Florida, and I still like them a lot. Florida State would have been my other favorite, but Florida was the one," he told Scout's Chad Simmons.

He's taken spring visits to Florida, Florida State, Clemson, and Georgia, and has offers from all of those schools along with Alabama, and now Miami.

Sharpe projects as a left tackle in college and is being recruited like one of the best in the entire state. In fact, no tackle prospect has better offers. He's right there with K.C. McDermott in terms of offers.

Pulling players from the Jacksonville has never been easy for Miami, and this one will be really tough since he has so many other options and since he grew up following Florida and Florida State the most. Until Miami gets him down on a visit, it'll likely be a longshot for the Hurricanes.

Sharpe becomes yet another offensive line prospect to land an offer from the Canes, indicating they plan to sign a 5th offensive lineman. And since some of those players are guards and some are tackles, it likely doesn't matter which one that 5th one plays.
