Sierra Vista, Arizona is located but miles from the U.S. border with Mexico. The city is surrounded by mountains and desert and seems like an unlikely place to find a division I middle linebacker prospect like DeAndre Little. However, Vanderbilt found Little there.
After a fine junior season in which he registered 135 tackles and 5 sacks, Little was named the Southern A Region Defensive Player of the Year.
Little is 6-foot-1 and weighs in at 231 pounds. He was timed at the 4.53 seconds in the forty at the prestigious Ultimate 100 combine.
Already with offers from UTEP and New Mexico, Little wishes for one from Vanderbilt. "My interest level is very high in them," said Little.
Little, who has relatives living in Nashville, camped there in July but unfortunately he pulled hamstring and wasn't able to compete. Despite that he enjoyed his time in Nashville, "My time in Nashville was wonderful. The people are very different out there and that's a great thing," Little spent some time visiting family while in town.
Little has yet to receive an offer from Vanderbilt but that could change. The Commodores are expected to sign two linebackers this recruiting year and the VU staff could turn to Little if other more higher profile prospects fall through.
