ESPN 300 OT Sharpe set to trim list

By Derek Tyson

David Sharpe (Jacksonville, Fla./Providence), one of the top offensive tackles in the country, took an unofficial visit to Georgia on Saturday. The 6-foot-6, 290-pound tackle prospect said he enjoyed his experience in Athens.

"The visit to Georgia was great," Sharpe said. "I really enjoyed it. We just went up there for the game and came back. I like the offense. They are a winning offense and I like they way they use their tackles and their run blocking. It's a fun offense."

This was the second consecutive week the four-star prospect has seen the Bulldogs play. Sharpe was in attendance for Clemson's 38-35 victory over Georgia in Week 1. Sharpe compared the two experiences.

"I enjoyed both of them, but the Georgia game was crazier than the Clemson game, though," he said. "The fans were more rabid at Georgia than they were at Clemson, but I enjoyed both of them."

The No. 2-ranked offensive tackle in the country said he will not visit any schools next week but is planning to make a few more visits before narrowing things down.

"I don't have any tops [top schools] right now, but I'll probably trim my list very soon," he said. "I'll probably take a few more visits and then make that list. I'm going to a Florida game and then I'm definitely going to the Florida-Georgia game."

Sharpe publicly claims no leader, but admits there may be a school standing out in his own mind.

"Yeah, there is one that is standing out a little bit," he said, "but I don't want to say just yet."

Sharpe has no timetable on when he would like to make a decision, but he said it shouldn't be long.
