Little is a rising star at Garden City

A player who many schools are intrigued to watch this fall is Garden City OT Bernard Little (6-4, 290). As a redshirt freshman, the talented offensive line prospect knows he has to show schools what he can do before they will extend him an offer, so he's been hard at work getting ready to do just that...

Little prepped at Putnam County High School in Eatonton, Georgia and was a non-qualifier. After searching around, he finally settled on Garden City where he redshirted last season.

"I just needed to get my grades up where they need to be and just focus on that side of things so last year I redshirted," Little told JCFootball.com. "That's all straight now and I had a good spring with my team and feel like I'm set up to have a good season this fall."

With his size and athleticism, including a 4.85 forty time, Little could play almost anywhere along the line, but projects to the right tackle position with the Broncbusters.

"I'm aggressive and I love to play game," Little said. "When I'm out there I feel like no one can beat me and that's the mindset I take into everything I do."

On the recruiting front, things have been rather tepid, but it's understandable since schools have yet to see what he can really do at the JUCO level, but that hasn't kept a handful of schools from showing him some interest this offseason.

"Indiana, Minnesota, Louisiana Tech, Ole Miss and Arkansas are the schools I spoke to this spring and have heard from," Little said. "No one has offered me yet, but that's because they haven't see what I can do yet and my coaches think that after the first month of the season I should be seeing a lot more schools look at me and what I can do."

Should Little get an offer this year, he will graduate in May with three years to play three.

We will have more from Little in the coming weeks and months as he works his way through the recruiting process.
