Sharp Talks About Upcoming Visits

Even though he's verbally committed to Kansas State, the Texas quarterback prospect Aaron Sharp started looking into Pac-12 programs recently...

Houston (Texas) Summer Creek quarterback Aaron Sharp committed to Kansas State early on in the process, but the 6-foot-3, 190-pound prospect received new interest from the Pac-12 in early December.

Sharp, a three-star athlete who was nominated by the Houston Touchdown Club as Offensive Player of the Year, says he has plans to visit both UCLA and Washington.

"I'm going to visit UCLA this weekend and will visit Washington the weekend after," said Sharp.

Why the interest in the West Coast programs? A large part of it, says Sharp, has to do with the coaching staffs.

"I've been talking with [Huskies' head coach Chris] Petersen and [Bruins' head coach Jim] Mora. I really like both of them and I get along with them great.

"UCLA is on the rise and I like what Coach Mora has done with their program. The same thing goes for Washington," he said.

Sharp claims an offer from both programs, and says that both are recruiting him as a quarterback.

Currently considered a soft verbal to the Wildcats, it appears that Sharp is open to his other options and a flip in commitment is viable, though he's not quite sure as to when he'll be announcing his final decision.

"It might be on National Signing Day, but I could just announce closer to the end of the month," he said.

The signal-caller led his team to an 11-1 season and accounted for 2,700 yards and 30 total touchdowns last fall.
