Littell Is Part Of A QB Laden Junior Day

Oklahoma State held its Junior Day for the 2012 recruiting class on Saturday afternoon and among the reported 60 to 70 attendees were a bunch of quarterbacks including Brady Burgin of Highland Park, Texas, Dalyn Williams of Lake Dallas, Brent Wilson of Ponca City, Sand Springs' Darrack Harger, Beggs' Ramsey Hamilton, Yukon's Corben Jones, and Stillwater's own Jerame Littell.

The 6-4, 195-pound Littell is the son of Oklahoma State Cowgirls basketball assistant head coach Jim Littell. His mom Barb is a former two-sport college athlete, so athletics runs in the family. Being around Oklahoma State is also a very comfortable thing for Littell.

"It went good and I just got home about 30 minutes ago," said Littell when we spoke with him. "I feel like I've been there and yeah, it is different for me than maybe the other recruits there.

"In some ways it is all still new to me, but at the same time I feel more at home. I know some of the coaches and it was real comfortable for me to be talking to and having fun with Coach (Doug) Meacham, Coach (Joe) DeForest, and Coach (Joe) Wickline because I know those guys."

Littell said he is getting mail and he has been invited to Junior Days at Kansas and Duke in addition to Oklahoma State.

Last season, despite some team deficiencies, he threw for 2,878 yards and 23 touchdowns on 201-of-353 passing. He also threw 11 interceptions.

In his Stillwater career he has thrown for 6,036 yards and is first all-time in school history in pass completions and trails former Stillwater All-American and current St. Louis Cardinals All-Star outfielder Matt Holliday in career yards (175 yards) and career touchdown passes (12). He should pass Holliday on both those categories this season.

Littell said one of the things he liked about the Oklahoma State Junior Day was it was not all football.

"I liked the fact they spent a good amount on academics," he said. "That to go along with the facilities that I hadn't seen were the highlights for me. I had never been in the players area and that was great to see some of that."

Littell did not play basketball at Stillwater High School this season and that has allowed him to do more lifting and work on getting stronger. He said he is going to play baseball, where his brother is a standout as well.

"I'm still lifting and I think that has really helped."

Keep on eye on Littell as he is one of a really talented quarterback class in Oklahoma for 2012 and he is right down the street from Oklahoma State. He should be easy to keep an eye on.
