Uplifting Visit for Little

Once again, Greg Little unofficially visited Chapel Hill. This time, however, his stay was for academic reasons, but he was able to sneak in some time with the North Carolina players and a few fellow recruits.

"We went for Project Uplift," said Little, who was joined by teammate and UNC verbal commit Jonathan Smith. "We saw this talent show – a little dance type thing. We then went out with the players after that. We went to one of the football parties with Garrett White."

Little, a 6-foot-3 205-pound athlete at Durham (N.C.) Hillside, says each visit is used to continue his evaluation of North Carolina.

"I'm just looking to feel everything out," said Little. "I'm looking for the good things and the bad things."

Little seems to be on campus just as much – if not more – than any other recruit. That appears to be working in the Tar Heels' favor despite Little's lack of a favorites list.

"They are moving on up in the [favorites] list right now," said Little. "I don't really have [a favorites list], but I can say that they are there on the list. They have an advantage with them being so close. I've been able to make a lot of visits because they're close."

With over 25 scholarship offers to mull over, Little will wait until later this summer to narrow down his list of schools to a firm five. He is sticking to his October 6th announcement date.

Little will skip out on the college camps this summer, but his team plans to participate in 7-on-7 passing tournaments at East Carolina (June 17th), Virginia (June 24th) and Alabama.

In his junior season at Hillside, Little mostly played tailback where he rushed 160 times for 1,166 yards and 26 touchdowns. During reps at wideout, he caught 23 passes for 375 yards and four touchdowns. In limited action on defense, Little picked off four passes.
