The University of Pittsburgh invited J. Sharps to their Junior Day on March 6th. However, due to a conflict with his basketball team's post season, he is unsure if he will be able to attend.
During the 2003 season Sharps caught 48 passes for 768 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Besides possessing great size and speed, what separates him from other receivers?
"I have good hands; I see the field well; I have the height to get over most defensive backs and enough speed to get by them."
Sharp's favorite player is another big and fast wide receiver, Randy Moss.
During the winter Sharps plays center on the Westerville – South basketball team, and he doesn't stop there, as he is a member of the track and field team. He runs the hurdles, 4x100 relay, and also does the long and high jumps.
At this point in time Sharps hasn't been offered by a school but will definitely be one to keep an eye on. This summer Jay will camp at Ohio State and Michigan.
