Little, a 6-foot-4 210-pound athlete from Durham (N.C.) Hillside, will announce his collegiate decision on October 6th during his homecoming game. Before then he will "hopefully" visit all nine aforementioned schools in some form or fashion.
"The plan with the official visits is to take them to the ones I know least about," said Little. "Right now, I don't know which ones I'm going to take official visits to. I do have one set up with Notre Dame [September 16th] and I'm trying to schedule one with USC."
In-state schools Duke, North Carolina, and Wake Forest will "probably not" get an official visit because of their proximity.
"I'll just drive up and see a game [at those schools] or something since they're so close," said Little.
Little hasn't been to any school more than he's been to North Carolina. The familiarity of the school helped the Tar Heels make the cut.
"The coaching staff was great, they're really talking about some early playing time, and I think they have some good academics," said Little.
This past Friday, Little open up his senior season with a 32-7 victory over McLeansville (N.C.) Northeast Guilford. Little play running back because he was "hurt" and rushed for 78 yards and two touchdowns.
Hillside will host Graham (N.C.) in the Hornets' home opener this Friday.
