While he claims numerous other offers, one other school is looking.
"Maryland was at practice the other day and they liked what they had seen," he said. "That is the only other school I know for sure is interested."
Though he hasn't set any officials yet, Sharpe is working on it.
"I'm starting to schedule some officials soon, I don't know when I'll be going yet."
Does the Piscataway prospect like anybody?
"Right now I'm pretty even on everybody and still weighing my options," he said. "I just want to play against good competition and get a good education. I'm probably going to major in communications."
On the field, Sharpe has helped his team to a 3-2 record.
"I feel I'm doing pretty well, I'm contributing to the team."
With little known about Sharpe, what sticks out?
"I play both ways. As far as wide receiver, I make plays. If the quarterback throws me the ball, it's my ball. At free safety, I can cover a lot of space and get to the ball. I react well."
A talented basketball player as well, Sharpe is receiving Division I interest there as he averages 17-points per game.
