"Before we really got started on the one-on-ones I was talking to the running back coach. He said ‘I would like you to meet Coach Ted Roof.' He came over and said that I would be one of the guys that they would be really going hard on this coming up season. He said that he really liked me and he wanted to offer me."
Little, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound rising junior from Durham (N.C.) Hillside, is also seeing interest from Virginia, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Texas, Wake Forest, and Michigan.
Being the first among the interested schools to tender has really given the Blue Devils an advantage.
"With Duke being the first to offer and with them being big on academics, it really surprised me," said Little. "I mean I make good grades and everything, but for them to be the first offer it's overwhelming."
So overwhelming that Little, who is a huge fan of Texas, has completely opened up his recruitment.
"I'm really undecided," said Little. "Texas is still there, but everybody is still a contender equally."
The debate still continues as to where Little should play at the next level, but Little just wants to be on the football field.
"I'm willing to play wherever," said Little. "I don't really consider myself a running back, I consider myself an athlete. N.C. State is really strong on me being a safety that is where I'll be lining up on defense this year [for Hillside]."
Little also attended N.C. State's camp earlier in the month and has plans to camp at North Carolina on July 15th.
