An injury kept 2015 Carrboro (NC) tailback Trai Sharp out of action late in his junior season and that prevented him from matching his numbers from 2012. But it hasn't hurt him as a recruit.
Sharp accounted for over 3,000 all-purpose yards and 38 touchdowns
as a sophomore at Carrboro and he was expected to turn in another
big season last fall. But his season-ending injury put a dent in
those plans and gave him more time on the sidelines than he would
"It's a ton better. I'm back in the swing of things and feeling
better than before," he said.
If Sharp comes back better than ever as a senior then his offer list
is going to explode. He's already got NC State, Purdue, Duke and
"NC State was my first offer and that was last season around
September. I've talked to Coach Clayton White pretty frequently and
I think he's a great guy. He gives good advice and he knows a lot
about football. I've already been there about three or four times.
"The last time I was up there was for the State versus Clemson
football game. The first time I was there was for a camp. I was at a
Junior Day and then another camp following that. Then the Clemson
game. I like it because it's really close to home and the coaches
seem like they would be good people to play for."
Sharp said he has been to Duke, Wake Forest and Purdue but he
remains wide open without any favorites.
If Sharp decides he is content with the offers he has that could
determine what his summer schedule looks like and it could be light.
He will have an opportunity as a senior to show how he has returned
from his injury and schools will be watching to see what form he
shows up in.
