Mario Little Talks About His Visit

Mario Little has narrowed his list of schools to three. He is sure that one of those three will be the place he finishes his college career. Get inside for more on Little and how his visit went this past weekend.



Mario Little is a 6-5 wingman formerly of Chicago (IL), but now plays his junior college basketball at Marianna (FL) Chipola. Little will pick between Illinois, Kansas State or Kansas.

Kedric:
Did you enjoy your visit this past weekend and what did you do?

Mario:
Yes, I liked it a lot. I watched the guys work out, and then we all hung out and went out together. They did it as a team. Then I worked out with the team.

Kedric:
Were you happy with your play when you got the chance to be out there with them?

Mario:
I did pretty good. I played hard; I will always do that - it's my game. I really didn't shoot it too well. The rims were kind of tight and they were shots I usually make, but I did okay.

Kedric:
Which coach were you with the most and which players?

Mario:
I was with everyone, but most of my time was spent with Coach Howard. He's the guy replacing Coach Webster, and he was the guy recruiting me at first. I think he's really good and he's a good fit for Illinois. He's really young and that helps players my age because he can relate better I think. But I have had some contact with Coach Weber too.

Kedric:
Now that you have visited the schools, what are your thoughts on them?

Mario:
I like them all. I knew I would. That's why they are on my list. I can't say one leads over the other at this point. There's still some time for me to make my decision.

Kedric:
When are you planning to pick your next college destination?

Mario:
I'm not sure yet. There's a lot more to it and I want to make the right decision for me. When I pick my school I'm looking at how much they win, how they play and a coach that can help prepare me for the next level.

Kedric:
Thanks, Mario. I know you had a long weekend. Thank you and good luck.

Mario:
Thanks and no problem.
