Oklahoma City (OK) Millwood defensive end Joshua Little has emerged as a top prospect in the state of Oklahoma. His recruitment had been slow to take off but it has changed a lot over the course of the last two months.
He has went from zero offers to seven.
Little has received scholarships from Iowa State, Purdue, Western Illinois, Texas State, Arkansas State, and Washington State. Though he's appreciative of the attention, he's still wanting to move slowly through his process.
"It is too early for favorites right now," he told Scout. "I had considered making an early decision but with interest in me increasing, I want to ride it out and see what else might come my way."
The Cyclones are one of the newest schools to offer and Iowa State has definitely caught the eye of Little.
"It was real exciting," he said about receiving the offer. "I'm very thankful for it. I want to go visit the campus some time this summer."
In the little time that he's had to chat with the Iowa State staff, he's noticed he's a priority for them moving forward.
"They think I would be a great fit," he pointed out. "They want me to be an important key to their defense. They'd love to have me join their program."
The Boilermakers were the first school to offer Little and definitely had an advantage in his recruitment for quite a while. He admits that he even considered committing to them at one point.
"I was actually leaning towards them quite a bit," Little shared about Purdue. "They were my first offer so that means a lot to me. I am starting to get more recruiting interest now and more offers so I'm going to hold off and keep all of my options available."
He explained what he's come to like about the Boilermakers.
"I really liked the schedule they played and the conference they are from," Little discussed. "It's a high level of college football. There's still some time left for me to wait and make a more educated decision, though."
"They really want me because they feel that I'm a special player," he added. "I could be the first in the class to commit there for their defense."
Little has no upcoming visits scheduled but plans to focus on setting up a few for this summer in the near future.
