Recruiting: Littlehead Has Hectic Summer

Talented, popular, and busy are three words to describe defensive tackle/offensive line prospect Chris Littlehead of Tahlequah (Sequoyah), Okla. The 6-4, 305-pound Littlehead took on a rapid pace over the last few weeks ending with the half-day high school camp at Oklahoma State on June 14.

"Everything was really hectic as I went to Ole Miss for their camp and then right when I got back I left that morning for OU," explained Littlehead. "Then just when OU finished it was time to get to Stillwater for that camp. It was a lot, but I liked it because it was a lot of football and a lot of one on one's."

Littlehead, who has a 335-pound bench press and a 485 max on the squat, is being recruited for both sides of the line of scrimmage. He plays both ways for former OSU quarterback Brent Scott, who is the head coach at Tahlequah Sequoyah.

He has offers from Baylor, Mississippi, Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Louisville, Nebraska, Tulsa, and Oklahoma State among others. As far as his experience at the Oklahoma State camp, he said it was very positive.

"I thought it went real well," said Littlehead. "I worked with both Coach (Bill) Young and some offense with Coach (Joe) Wickline. That was a positive to work on both sides.

"I was real impressed with the (new facilities). I liked everything about that. It was real, real nice. I do enjoy being in the weight room and that was probably why that was the biggest highlight for me and what I was most impressed with."

Littlehead said he still is not pressing his timetable with recruiting. He had said he hoped to narrow down his choices before football season started, and he hasn't backed off of that. He did say he might attend camp at Tulsa and go to Kansas and possibly Missouri before the summer is over.

"I'm really taking my time," added Littlehead. "I might go to those camps and then I'm working to help my team out. Hopefully, we can win a state championship."
