Little Sets Two Officials

Charles Little, a 6-foot-5 combo forward out of Tennessee, has a pair of official visits on the docket. He's beginning to narrow his focus and work toward a decision.

It's not easy picking a school. Charles Little of Cleveland (Tenn.) High says he can't settle in on a final list even though he's trying.

"I got it down somewhat," Little said. "I got like 7 schools, if that. It fluctuates from day to day."

In particular, there is one consistent school. "Dayton is the only consistent school right now. My coach knows one of their coaches. I went up there last year and I liked it." Little had such a nice time there that he's not sure he'll need to visit the Flyers officially but is strongly considering them.

Mississippi, Penn State, Tennessee, Boston College and Houston are in the mix as well. In fact, he'll visit Penn State the weekend of Sept. 4 and then head to Mississippi the weekend of September 24. He's working on the details of his Tennessee trip which would leave him with two open spots.

The Volunteers are in the mix contingent upon their recruitment of No. 49 Tyler Smith. If they were to land Smith, it would be hard to get snare Little in the same class.

Regardless, Little wants to be able to decide before his season. "I was going to try and do it before the season but I don't know. Everyone is trying to get it over with."

Still, Little says he couldn't decide today if he had to. "That's a great question. I don't think I could do it."

The athletic forward feels like he brings some intangibles to the table and that should translate into the college game. "I'm aggressive. I don't think too many people play as hard as me. I'm a slasher. It's hard to explain my game. I'm just one of those get it done people."

And he'd like to get it done before the season starts.
