Little Impressed with New Scheme

Although Chapel Hill was crawling with top 2007 recruiting targets during North Carolina's Junior Day, five-star prospect Greg Little was arguably the highest profile recruit. The 6-foot-3 205-pound athlete from Durham (N.C.) Hillside left the event with nothing but positive feelings towards the program.

"It went pretty good," said Little. "The coaches were pretty cool, and they had some pretty top quality facilities."

During his stay, Little toured the campus and observed the Tar Heels' spring practice. He also spoke with his recruiting coordinator, Ken Browning, his position coach, Dave Brock, head coach John Bunting, and new offensive coordinator, Frank Cignetti.

"They told me the type of offense they run was a ‘match-up offense'" said Little. "They will motion the receiver into the backfield and run him out to the flat or run the ball [with him]. It's pretty nice setup for me [as a hybrid tailback/receiver]."

While Little is wide open to all of his scholarship offering schools, the Tar Heels' new offense definitely has caught his attention.

"North Carolina, I think they can really be a top contender as far as the offense they run," said Little. "I could really get some early playing time [at UNC]."

In addition to UNC, Little's offers sheet includes Clemson, Duke, Florida, Mississippi, N.C. State, Nebraska, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wake Forest.

Currently the remainder of Little's spring slate is empty, but his summer schedule figures to be a hectic one with Little attending camps at Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Tennessee, Oklahoma, and Penn State.
