GoPokes.com recently caught up with several of the Oklahoma State signees to ask "10 Questions" designed to allow Cowboy fans an opportunity to get to know the players who will be signing next Wednesday. Here are the answers provided by kicker/punter Quinn Sharp of Mansfield (Summit), Texas.

1) What about Oklahoma State first caught your eye?
Sharp: I think the think that first caught my eye was the coaches and players.

2) What was your deciding factor in committing to the Cowboys?
Sharp: After I visited the campus I liked it a lot. The program is moving forward with all the new incoming people, and everything they're doing to rebuild. It's a good school overall and they've got a good graduation rate which is good just in a case I don't go to the next level, I'll have something to fall back on.

3) What are three words that describe you as a person?
Sharp: Laid back. Outgoing. A fun person to be around.

4) What are three words that describe you as a football player?

Sharp: There's not much we do but I would say kicking game-winning field goals. And, as weird as it sounds for a kicker, I like to make tackles. I used to play safety when I was younger and I like to make a tackle every now and then on a kickoff.

Sharp: Hang out with friends, and mess with my car.

7) If you don't go to the NFL, what profession would you like to enter?
Sharp: Probably either sports psychology or sports management.

8) What are you most looking forward to in terms of playing at OSU?
Sharp: Just having a good experience and seeing how far we can take our team. Seeing if we can take our team go to the next level and make history.

Sharp: The speed of the game, working out, keep in shape and stuff like that.

10) Who is the one player on Oklahoma State's roster or in your recruiting class that you are most looking forward to being teammates?
