After offensive line coach Darrell Funk made it by Allen (Tex.) high a few weeks ago Michigan wasted little time deciding to extend an offer to sophomore phenom Greg Little. The talented youngster admits to having limited knowledge on the Maize & Blue, but he hopes to change that in the not too distant future.
“(Funk) is a good guy and I would love to know more about him and stuff,” said Little. He talked about how the summer is a pretty good (time to visit). I’m going to check it out in the summer.”
Michigan is the latest addition to a list that already included Texas A&M, Texas, Baylor, TCU, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Clemson and Ole Miss. That list is sure to grow in the coming weeks as new suitors get a glimpse of 6-6, 270-pounder’s abounding potential.
“I’m not a big fat guy,” Little said describing his game. “I’m pretty lean. I play basketball. I have long arms, good foot work and I go hard basically every play. I don’t take plays off. I think I am a better pass blocker, but I can get down and run block too.”
Plucking prospects of Little’s talent level out of the Lone Star State is often a daunting task, but he insists is open to all possibilities near or far.
“I grew up (liking) Texas, but after Colt McCoy I really didn’t like Texas anymore,” he said. “(No schools stick out) right now. I’m just a sophomore. I’m trying to get them all in. I’ve only visited a couple of schools, so it is kind of hard to make a judgment.”
As he visits the various campuses there is one trait in particular he’ll be looking for.
“I guess whatever feels like home,” Little stated. “You would know if it felt like home. Distance is not a factor. My family kind of wants me close to home but they’ll support me anywhere.”
“I am going to try and (make a decision) either in June before my senior or after.”
