Heels Making Big Progress with Little

On Saturday, Greg Little was among the many recruits in attendance for North Carolina's spring game as the Scout.com five-star athlete continues to learn more about the Tar Heels' program.

"It went pretty well," said Little. "I got to see and experience a lot of things that I haven't seen before at Carolina and spent a lot of time with the coaches. It was a pretty nice experience."

Besides the game time atmosphere of the spring game, one of the major things Little was able to experience was socializing with the players and coaches.

"I got to see the players outside of football and I got to spend time with the coaches off the field," said Little. "I went out with the players for a while and talked to them about why they came to Carolina. They said basically the coaches were very truthful to them during the recruiting process. They said they never lied to them."

The unofficial visit went so well that Little will be returning to campus Monday to meet with offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti and learn more about the Tar Heels' new offense.

"I should be going back [Monday]," said Little. "It was a special invite – me and Mike Paulus are heading up there."

Paulus, the Scout.com four-star quarterback, really hit it off with Little during the first meeting of the two blue chippers.

"We just talked about some recruiting," said Little. "He said he liked Carolina, because he feels like he could be a difference maker. I feel the same way he does – I could really be a difference maker at a place like that. I don't want to go to a place that I'm just another number or just another body – I want to go to a place where I'm going to play."

While it appears North Carolina is making headway with Little, he's still playing the "I'm open to everybody" card.

"It really let's me know where Carolina stands," said Little. "I'm pretty much open to everyone right now, but it lets me know where they stand as a whole."

Besides a handful of combines left on his schedule, Little's spring is virtually free for any additional unofficial visits for the remainder of the spring. He will, however, have a fairly hectic summer camping schedule that figures to include schools from the West Coast and Midwest.

A 6-foot-3, 205-pound athlete from Durham (N.C.) Hillside, Little has around 20 scholarship offers and isn't planning to narrow things down until later in the year.
