Lone Peak's Sharp commits to walk on with Utes

Josh Sharp, a 6-foot-7 forward for Lone Peak High School, said Monday he will play for the University of Utah next season.

Because the Utes have already promised all of their allotment of scholarships for next year, Sharp will walk on to the Ute team, he said.

"I just really like the coaches and players and feel that I can learn a lot there," said Sharp, who made his official visit to Utah over the weekend. "I feel like I can fit in well there."

Sharp, who was also being recruited by Weber State, said he plans to go on an LDS mission after his freshman season. He hopes to eventually earn a scholarship as other walk-on players at Utah have done, such as current Ute guard Chris Grant.

The four high school players who have already committed to play for Jim Boylen's Utes next year are Brighton High guard Jace Tavita; Jordan Cyphers, a guard from Wichita; Chris Hines, a guard from Houston; and Jason Washburn, a center from Michigan.
