USC targeting Jacksonville OL

OL David Sharpe is wanted by the Gamecocks.

OL David Sharpe (6-8 290) of Jacksonville holds 14 offers including Clemson and USC. His others are Florida State, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Duke, Miami, Purdue, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Ohio State and Georgia Tech. He has visited Florida and Florida State and will get to Clemson and USC this summer.

Sharpe does not have favorites but does have interest in USC and Clemson. "I like South Carolina, I like coach (Steve) Spurrier Jr.," he said. "He wants to get me up there and see the campus. He said I'll fit in well with the program. I've been talking to coach (Jeff) Scott and he wants to get me up there also." Sharpe has never been to USC or Clemson.

He said all the schools are recruiting him about the same. He'll make his decision after the season. "I'm looking for some place where I'm comfortable," he said.

Sharpe grew up a Florida fan but said that won't factor into his decision.
