A few weeks ago, coveted offensive lineman David Sharpe had to postpone his college announcement. He hinted on his Twitter feed that his high school, Providence out of Jacksonville (Fla.), wouldn’t allow it to happen.
A second date was chosen–Thursday, Dec. 5. But according to Sharpe’s very brief recent Tweet, the announcement has been postponed once again–to Thursday, Dec. 12. His father had been quoted for many weeks saying they’d want to wrap things up before he got deep into his high school basketball season–as he is a talented hoopster too.
Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and others can’t wait to hear the final decision, but they’ll have to wait one more week.
Sharpe enjoyed his official visit to Florida over the weekend, and even though the trip was interrupted briefly by his need to play basketball for his high school team, he was there for most of the weekend. Florida and Tennessee received official visits from Sharpe, and Georgia was also a hot commodity. And of course Florida State is nearby and doing extremely well on the field. He’ll have several hats on the table when he finally does announce, but it appears Florida may once again be the team to beat for his services after there was a time period where the Bulldogs were looking good.
Sharpe dropped in many services’ rankings over the course of the regular season, from a five-star to a four-star. Some entities felt he did not perform well this year. But at 6-foot-6, 290 pounds with athleticism, he has a huge upside.
