RD: What schools have offered you so far? Are there any other schools you're interested in?

RD: Who is your recruiter for Toledo and how do they see you fitting into their system?
Jon Sharp: Well I talk with Coach Boyd (Andy Boyd-Outside LB Coach). He usually talks to me once a week and we have a pretty good relationship. They are looking at me for an outside LB.
RD: You visted Toledo for the Purdue game, what did you think of the campus and have you visited any other colleges yet?
Jon Sharp: Well I went to Toledo in the summer as well and got to meet some professors, defensive coordinators, S&C coach and just kind of walked around campus. I haven't had time to visit any other colleges, but since my season is over now I can visit more schools now.
RD: Do you talk with any of your buddies about possible going to the same school?
Jon Sharp: Yea, I have two guys that I talk with. I talk to Marvase Byrd about Akron and Kurtis Rassan about Toledo. Both talk to me about possible going to the same school. Kurtis who is from Clairton committed to Toledo and keeps telling me I should come.
RD: How is school going for you?
Jon Sharp: I just got my report card and I have a 3.4 grade average right now.
