Recruiting: Sharp Now Top Kicker Prospect

Kicker/punter Quinn Sharp of Mannsfield (Summit), Texas is now considered by at least one reputable source as the top kicking prospect in the nation. Sharp, who committed in February to Oklahoma State, attended the recent spring competition at the renown Chris Sailer Kicking combine in Las Vegas, Nev. Following the competition, Sailer bumped Sharp up to the No. 1 spot on his prospect list.

"Yes, he moved me up to number one," said Sharp. "I had a couple of kickoffs that had 4.4 and 4.5 (second) hang time. I was really long and accurate on my field goals, and my punts are doing a lot better."

The 6-1, 185-pound Sharp was recruited by Oklahoma State as a kicker and his improved punting is a bonus for the OSU staff, which intends to recruit a future punter in the 2009 recruiting class. Sharp also plays baseball and said he had a solid spring in that sport.

"We finished fifth, one spot out of the playoffs and we lost the last game on a walk-off grand slam," explained Sharp. "I hit for a .315 average and lead the team in RBIs with 17 and scored 15 runs. I'm working on getting a job right now, but I am going to a couple of camps, the Top 12 camp in California and then next Friday I'm going to the OSU kicking camp up in Stillwater."

Sharp also reinterated that his commitment to Oklahoma State is a solid one and that he is not considering any other schools.
