Sharp Talks More on Commitment

The athletic quarterback from Texas, Aaron Sharp, told Jim Mora Monday night in an in-home visit that he was committing to UCLA...

It is something about the west coast that has young men from down south wanting to get that direction quickly.

That is what it appears happened in the case of Humble (Tex.) Summer Creek quarterback Aaron Sharp. After an official visit this past weekend to UCLA and an in-home with his future coaches Monday, that seemed to seal the deal.

"I went to campus and loved everything. I got to talk to the players and everything went well," Sharp said. 

As if that weren't enough, Jim Mora and quarterbacks coach Taylor Mazzone went to Texas, to the home of the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Sharp Monday. Once the conversation was over, Sharp said the words that had UCLA fans everywhere excited.

"The coaches came by my house and talked about the plans they had for me. It was about three hours ago," Sharp, who was once a Kansas State commit said. "Once we got done and everything sounded good, I told coach Mora I wanted to be a Bruin."

And there it is.


One of the key selling points Sharp mentioned was that the coaching staff is stocked with men who know plenty about the inner workings of the NFL and had the credentials to put the Humble, Tex., native in the best position to make that dream possible.

"I thought that I would be in a better place to develop as a quarterback. A lot of the coaching staff has NFL experience and they know what it takes to make it to the NFL," Sharp said. "The team and everything is run like the NFL. I like that I will be able to compete for a spot once Brett Hundley leaves. 

"I just thought overall it was a good program for me."

Since he has been playing varsity football, he has very few losses on his resume, which includes an 11-1 finish in his final year as a prep athlete. Last season, he accounted for just over 2,700 yards and 30 total touchdowns.
