RB Little Recaps WVU, Rutgers

Class of 2014 running back Marques Little of Williamstown (N.J.) High was at West Virginia and Rutgers the last two Saturdays and he shared his thoughts on each visit with FOXSportsNEXT.

The games turned out to be extremes of one another, and Marques Little still enjoyed both of them.

A week after watching West Virginia beat Baylor 70-63, the Williamstown (N.J.) High class of 2014 running back saw Rutgers use a grind-it-out style to beat Connecticut 19-3.

"West Virginia had great atmosphere," Little said. "I love the place, love the offense they run and all (that)."

The 5-foot-10, 170-pound Little said the environment at West Virginia stood out.

During his visit to Rutgers, he had a chance to speak with his recruiting coach, Jim Panagos, who coaches the defensive line.

"It was a good experience and coach Panagos and I had a good conversation and he wants me to come back in December for my own unofficial (visit) day," Little said. "Rutgers was very impressive. Coach Panagos and I talked for about 15 minutes. I like it a lot because it's in state and they're doing well."

Williamstown is 5-0 and Little has carried 31 times for 407 yards and eight scores, and he also has three receptions for 116 yards and three touchdowns.

Schools are looking at him as a running back or cornerback and he also has 12 tackles, but he did not play last Friday because of a groin injury.

"It's going good," he said. "It's a lot better than after the (Sept. 28) Timber Creek (Erial, N.J.) game."

Little is slated to visit Penn State for the Oct. 27 game against Ohio State.
