RB Little Making Visits

ERIAL, N.J. -- Class of 2014 running back Marques Little already has one offer and several others suitors. He is also taking in plenty of games, and he spoke to FOXSportsNEXT about it.

ERIAL, N.J. – An hour before kickoff Williamstown (N.J.) High class of 2014 running back Marques Little was moving gingerly in warm-ups as he tried to loosen a groin injury he sustained a few days early.

The pain remained, but Little was able to play as the Braves knocked off South Jersey power Timber Creek Regional High 26-18, and adding to the excitement of beating a top rival, it came with coaches from Temple and Rutgers in attendance.

"With the offensive line, we were talking about keep pushing, keep fighting," Little said. "This is what we worked all summer for and we did it. We battled to the end.

"This is a signature win. I grew up with these guys. It's braggin' rights for me. It's a big win."

Little, who plays cornerback and running back, holds an offer from Temple and is getting interest from Penn State, Rutgers, West Virginia, Virginia and Wisconsin.

He also is in the process of making several trips. He was slated to visit West Virginia for Saturday's 70-63 win against Baylor, and will be at Rutgers and Penn State this month.

"I talk to (Rutgers assistant) coach (Jim) Panagos at least once a week, sometimes twice a week," Little said. "We're going to have a good talk after this game. He's caring, checks up on me and sees how I'm doing. I'm going to go up to the UConn game (Saturday) and hopefully talk to him a lot."

Little is also excited about a trip to Penn State late in the month.

"I've been up there four or five times already," he said. "I'm cool with (assistant) coach (Ron) Vanderlinder and (assistant) coach (John) Butler, the defensive backs coach. I'm talking to them a lot. I'm going to the Oct. 27 game against Ohio State, so I'm hoping we'll be able to talk more."

Little added he also wants to visit Wisconsin and Virginia, but distance will likely keep him waiting until the offseason to make those journeys.
