QB Price Litton Profile

6-3, 180 pound sophomore quarterback Price Litton (Matthews, N.C.) traveled to Clemson Saturday to watch the Tigers and learn more about Clemson University.

"I loved it," he told after his trip. "It was awesome. It was my first trip to Death Valley. Clemson really has a good team."

Price's father attended the Citadel in the 1980s.

"My dad played basketball at the Citadel. He was excited to be there for that game. I had received some information from Clemson so we decided to go down and see the game," said Litton.

Clemson recruiting coorindator/tight ends coach Billy Napier is recruiting Price and his teammate Anthony Boone.

"I got to meet with coach Napier on Saturday. He is a real nice guy. He is someone I definitely want to get to know better," said Litton.

"They want me to come back for all of the home games this year. I am not sure that I will make it next week, but I will definitely be back. I probably won't go anywhere this weekend."

Many of the top programs from around the nation already have shown some interest in the sophomore quarterback.

"I have heard from a bunch of schools already. Freddie Soloman from A.C. Flora high school helped me send out my film to over 80 schools. They all came back with positive thoughts after seeing my film. They will call my school to see how I am doing," said Litton.

"I have five or ten that I try to talk to. They are Virginia, Illinois, Colorado, Kentucky, Maryland and now Clemson."

Price has to play behind another very talented quarterback Anthony Boone, who camped at Clemson last summer.

"I am trying to really focus on QB. That is where I will play eventually. I have been backing him up, but I have been playing a good bit. Of course I would like to get in more. I will go in for series and let him regroup. I also played a little receiver on Friday. We do some trick plays with me at receiver where I can run or throw. We have five or six plays where I have several options," said Litton.

The Weddington (N.C.) standout traveled the camp and combines circuit last spring and summer and was impressive everywhere he went.

"I went to the Under-Armour combine in Charlotte. They said that Anthony, Chase and I were the best three quarterbacks there. My times in the skill tests were the best of the three. Then I went to the Shumans Underclassman combine in Columbia. I won the freshman MVP at that combine and got invited to the Elite 100 Combine in Atlanta. I won the MVP award for quarterbacks at that combine. I also went toe the Furman quarterbacks camp and won the MVP award there," said Litton.

What will the super soph look for when he selects a college in a few years?

"As good as football is, I am trying to get a good education and have life after football. I will look at how good the academics are. I will look at the graduation rates. I will be looking for a nice campus with good people. I will be looking for a good university with a good football tradition. I will be looking for a good coaching staff and one that I fit in well with," he added. Top Stories
