LAS VEGAS - One of the first commitments for Oklahoma State was Mansfield (Texas) Summit kicker Quinn Sharp.
Though that commitment came way back in February, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect is still firmly committed to OSU. Sharp says that he doesn't see that changing either.
"I went up there, visited, and I just liked the community a lot," Sharp said. "It's not a real big place, but everyone is behind the program. I met a lot of good recruits that they've had the last couple of years.
"They the first to offer and once I visited, I liked it a lot. I wanted to get it out of the way and have a relaxing senior year. That way I didn't have to worry about pressuring myself in trying to get someone to look at me."
Plenty of people were looking at Sharp this past weekend when he attended the Fifth Annual National Kicking Spring Event in Las Vegas with instruction from kicking instructor Chris Sailer.
Regardless of his early decision, Sharp still says he wanted to come out and prove himself.
"I always want to move up in the rankings and get your name out there more," Sharp said. "You want to make sure people know that you're still interested in getting better."
Sharp says he'll bring many attributes to the table in the Big 12 at OSU but he says that he feels his strengths are kickoffs and field goals.
"I definitely think I'm best at those two things," he said. "My punts have gotten better in the last few weeks and months, but yeah my field goals are up there."
