Official Offer For Local Junior

With last week's verbal commitment from lineman Doug Weaver, the Duke coaching staff has gotten a solid jump on their recruiting efforts of the class of 2007. The Blue Devils have their eyes set on another backyard junior target – Greg Little, who recently received an official Duke scholarship offer.

"I was on my way back home from practice when my coach called me and told me that Duke wanted to talk to me," said Little. "My coach told me to call Coach [Ted] Roof. I talked to him and he said he wanted to get me to a game. He said he'd like for me to get to all of them, if I liked to. He said he would like to officially offer me."

Little, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound jumbo athlete from Durham (N.C.) Hillside, is also receiving letters from every school in the region.

Already enjoying the life of a recruit, Little has taken unofficial visits to both Duke and N.C. State, when both teams hosted ACC rival Virginia Tech and lost. During his visit to Raleigh, Little hoped to receive his second scholarship offer.

"They didn't talk about an offer," said Little. "They were just telling me to keep up the good work and I should look forward to some good things in the future."

Despite the lack of an offer, Little is very interest in what the Wolfpack have to offer.

"I definitely like N.C. State as far as defense," said Little. "It seems like they have a pretty organized program on defense. I'd like to fill the shoes of Mario [Williams] or Manny [Lawson]. I think I could portray what they've done so far."

The frame Little possesses – which is anything but little, matched with legit speed (4.4-4.5-forty speed), and overall football ability leave the door open for many position possibilities at the collegiate level. However, Little stars at running back for Hillside where he has rushed for 356 yards and six touchdowns on 62 carries thus far in his junior season.
