Ranked the top senior in the state of North Carolina and a National Top 100 prospect, according to, Little is down to a final four of Notre Dame, Southern Cal, Ohio State, and North Carolina.

The expectation among experts is that he'll choose either Notre Dame or North Carolina.

The Tar Heels are his hometown favorite, and he's visited nearby Chapel Hill at least a dozen times for games, school events or just to check in with the coaching staff. Little has highlighted UNC as a place he could make a big impact, and his teammate at Hillside, Jonathan Smith, is committed to North Carolina.
