"It just felt right. It just felt like the place that I'll fit in at and I'm really happy about my decision."
Litton selected Towson over a scholarship from Western Carolina. The 6-foot-2, 208-pound quarterback from Charlotte (N.C.) Providence Day also received significant interest from Akron, Miami (Ohio), and Richmond.
"I didn't really know much about Towson and never really been to Baltimore," Litton said. "I went up there, after I did all my camps, just to visit the school – I didn't go to the camp – just to spend the day [there], meet the coaches, check out the facilities and the school, and just learn about it."
The visit, which was of the unofficial variety, played a major role in Litton's decision.
"I was really impressed," Litton said. "It's a big school – about 23,000 students. It's in a great place – Baltimore is an awesome city. It's kind of right in the middle of a bunch of other colleges, like John Hopkins.
"On the football side of it, it's a young program [and] they have a brand new coaching staff. The head coach is from UConn and he came back to coach his alma mater, which I think is pretty cool because that let's you know the coaches are probably going to stay awhile."
James Vollono recruited Litton for Towson.
"[Vollono] came and saw me in the spring," Litton said. "He's a real nice, great, young guy. His little brother actually plays ball with one of my best friends at Campbell. I have a pretty good relationship with him. He's a good guy to be around – real happy and positive."
With Litton under center, Providence Day is 3-1. On the season, he has passed for 597 yards and five touchdowns with a 63-percent completion rate. He also has three rushing touchdowns.
