"I went up with my dad and sister," said Littlejohn. "It was a very rainy and cold game and I went in pretty blindly as I had never met any of the coaching staff before. However, they seemed very interested in me and I really liked what I saw. It was a fun game to watch."
Main recruiting coach Mike Tressel looks to have caught the 6-foot-4, 265-pound lineman's attention early.
"I told coach Tressel that I was coming and he was ready for me," he said. "He had been to a game of ours when we played Upper Arlington when they had a bye that week and they have a commit there. He said he liked what he saw from me at the game and it was nice to finally get a chance to meet him. I liked what I saw from him and also from offensive line coach Mark Staten."
Already holding a few early offers, Littlejohn knows his future will be as a guard or center. Saturday, he saw how he could fit if Michigan State ends up being the school he commits to in the future.
"I noticed at Michigan State, unlike some other schools that their offensive line was all around my level when it came to height," Littlejohn explained. "I hadn't paid that much attention to Michigan State football in the past, but noticed how they run the ball and lot and I feel better run blocking than pass blocking.
"Although I can pass block pretty well, I really enjoy getting down in the trenches especially in muddy games like that and running the ball."
