Destrehan offensive lineman Noland Sharpe reports a pair of early offers, and he talks about his…
Utah Targeting Another Louisiana prospect
"Mississippi State has offered, but I've also been hearing a lot from Utah, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, USC, Stanford, Oregon, Cal, and Georgia Tech."
The Utes are trailing a few SEC schools, but may have a leg up at some point if they decide to offer due to the way they use their offensive linemen.
"Alabama and Tennessee are the two schools that are standing out a lot right now for me, but I'd also like to play at a place where they pull their guards. They don't do that a lot in the SEC. I've watched Utah and they pull their guards a lot. I want to come out there and visit, but it's far and tough to get to."
With Utah's rise to prominence over the past couple of years, they've gone from a no name school to a consistent winner in a BCS conference, and guys like Sharpe are starting to take notice.
"The first time I saw Utah was in the Sugar Bowl a couple of years ago. I honestly didn't even know they had a football team before that and thought they were just a basketball school."
The 6-2, 260 pounder is aware of Utah's current players and commits that came from Louisiana and sees that as a draw as a place that might feel like home.
"I'm just looking for a schol that feels like home. They need to be honest and upfront with everyone and very straightforward. I respect that a lot."
With spring on the horizon, Sharpe will be busy on the camp circuit well into the summer as he hopes the hard work turns out a few more offers with a decision before his senior year starts.
"I'm just going to be attending a lot of camps in the south and then hopefully deciding at the end of the summer."
