Sharpley Sets Camp Plans

Marshall Michigan quarterback Evan Sharpley has been a busy man. Balancing a promising baseball career with football recruiting can be a task, but Sharpley's been able to see a number of schools so far this spring. Summer camps have arrived and Sharpley is scheduled to attend three in the next few weeks. Where will Sharpley be attending? When might he make a decision? Irish Eyes found out.

Evan Sharpley has been a busy guy. "Baseball is going well," said Sharpley. "We just played our first doubleheader for my summer league team."

The Irish have also scouted Sharpley in baseball. "Coach Grewe has been by and scouted me at a couple of my games," Sharpley said.

But, football is where Sharpley will likely earn his keep. "I'm going to camp on Wednesday at Purdue," he said. "And then I have Michigan on Monday and Notre Dame on the 29th. I might go to some other camps, but that depends on my baseball schedule."

With offers from Wisconsin, Indiana, E. Michigan, C. Michigan, LSU and Iowa, Sharpley has some great choices already. We asked him when he plans to decide. "I think by the end of the summer I'll have a pretty good idea where I want to go," said Sharpley. "I'll see if I can pick up a few offers and then I should have a good idea of where I want to go by then."

Sharpley says he's already been to a number of schools already. "I've already visited LSU. I've been down to a game at Iowa last fall and I went to the Nike camp there this spring. I've been to Michigan and Notre Dame a number of times."

Does Sharpley have a leader at this point? "They are all great schools. I like Notre Dame a lot. They have a great atmopshere. They are all good schools so it will be hard to decide."

Comments: I like Sharpley because he's not afraid to compete. He's been real patient (as has all the quarterbacks) with the Irish staff and their wish to see him peform at camp. Sharpley will get his stage on the 29th. This should be one of the more interesting summer camp sessions we can ever remember. Top Stories
