Recruiting: Littlehead Visits Former Teammate

Oklahoma State Cowboys verbal commitment Chris Littlehead, a standout two-way Tahlequah (Okla.) Sequoyah lineman, traveled with his high school coach and several Indians teammates last weekend to Oxford, Miss., to see former Tahlequah Sequoyah standout quarterback Nathan Stanley, who is now playing for Ole Miss.

The trip to Mississippi, who is one of many other schools besides Oklahoma State to offer a scholarship to Littlehead, caused some commotion on the Internet, and Littlehead said he caught it.

"You know I'm having no second thoughts," said the 6-4, 300-pounder who is gifted enough to be a prospect on both sides of the ball. "It was like all those rumors about OU offering me. It made me mad. I asked my dad what is up with all of that. He said that it's just people.

"I also talked to Coach (Bill) Young and assured him that I'm not having any second thoughts. I'll be at the Texas game and Texas Tech and the rest of the games this season."

Littlehead and the Tahlequah Sequoyah Indians are soaring and ranked second or third, depending upon the poll, and will play Kansas this Friday night. Littlehead said he did enjoy the trip to Ole Miss and saw the Rebels pound UAB, which allowed his former teammate some playing time.

"He (Stanley) is doing good," said Littlehead. "He threw two touchdown passes and is playing backup. I think he is number two, so if anything happened to (Jevan) Snead, then Nate would be the guy.

"I talked to the coaches while I was there. You know I've known them longer than any other college coaches because I went to my first camp at Arkansas when they were coaching there. I know them pretty well. I got to look at some of their stuff. The Grove, that is the thing before games and it was pretty cool."

Littlehead assured there are no second thoughts. It was just a fun trip with his teammates to see Nathan Stanley.
