Drew Little is a quarterback prospect that has put up big big numbers. Last season he threw for 3,100 yards and 41 touchdown passes as a junior while completing 60% of his passes. So far in three games this season he has thrown for 920 yards, seven scores and two interceptions. Little has also rushed for a touchdown.
Meanwhile, his McDonough (Ga.) Henry County High School team is 2-1. They lost a heartbreaker last weekend to Union Grove 21-20. Henry County scored late and elected to go for the win and a two point conversion rather than to tie the score.
So far Little has one scholarship offer. That's from Georgia State. He's excited about that one but hopes more are on the way.
"Boston College came by the school last Friday," said Henry County coach Rex Robertson. "Then they came to his game. BC called him yesterday and invited him to their game this weekend. I think they want him to visit officially later on. We'll see."
Little, 6-6 and 240 pounds, is the signal caller for one of Georgia's top offenses. One wide receiver, Jamal Patterson is one of the best in the state. Patterson is committed to Stanford. Another is Markeith Ambles, a junior transfer from Griffin (Ga.). Ambles had to sit out the first two weeks of the season because he was ruled ineligible. In his first week back last weekend against Union Grove he caught 12 passes for over 150 yards and a score. Patterson caught nine balls for 136 yards and a touchdown.
Henry County is off this weekend. They face Central Macon the following week.
