Bay Area athlete heats up

Athlete prospect Chris Little, Jr., (6-2.5, 217, 4.58) from Oakland (Calif.) Castlemont had an outstanding performance at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto. Not only did he perform well, Little definitely passed the look test.
The versatile Little is being recruited for his talents at both wide receiver and linebacker.
As a linebacker, the hard-hitting Little accounted for 45 tackles, five sacks, four fumbles caused, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions.
From his wide receiver position, Little had 37 receptions for 537 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Little earned first-team all-city, first-team all-league honors and was named junior cream of the crop by the Oakland Tribune.
So far Little has three offers from Nebraska, Arizona and Nebraska. Schools such as Arizona State, Cal, Oregon, USC, Idaho and UNLV have been by the school checking out the fast-rising Little out.
"Nebraska is recruiting me as a linebacker," Little said. "They told me I'm one of the top linebackers on their board and that I'm a good hitter who fits in with their program.
"Arizona, I think they're recruiting me as a receiver," Little said. "They tell me I'm a big physical receiver and like Nebraska, I fit in the Arizona program.
"I don't have a lot of information about Oregon State," Little said. "They just sent me a letter saying that I have a scholarship offer."
The scouting report on Little is he's athletic and is very physical. He has an unlimited upside and is extremely physical.
What is Little looking for in a college?
"I would like to attend a school that is not too big or too small," Little said. "A school where I can play football and get a good education.
"It would be nice if I could play close to home so my parents could see me play, but that won't be necessary.
"I know for sure I'm going to Cal's camp and USC's rising senior camp," Little said. "Other than those two camps I'm not sure of any others."
