WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Due to an injured right thumb, Tampa (Fla.) Wharton sophomore quarterback Chase Litton missed a majority of the spring. On Saturday, at the 2012 Heath Evans Foundation 7-on-7 Championship, he returned to the field with his teammates and worked off some of the rust brought on by that injury.
"It felt good to get back at it," Litton said. "I had some rust. We had some rust as a team. But hopefully we work through that and get better."
Despite missing the opportunity to impress colleges during the spring, the 6-foot-6, 195-pound quarterback already has an offer to his name.
"LSU is my only offer," Litton said. "It was just a weight off my shoulders when I got that offer."
While he has an offer, the Central Florida prospect is not satisfied with just one.
"That one offer is great and I love it, but I want to just keep going and building," Litton said. "I want to earn more. The objective is not done."
He intends to hit the road over the next two months and do numerous camps in hopes of earning more offers from schools.
"I am trying to go up to Tennessee on Tuesday or Wednesday," Litton said. "Then I will be going to Miami's camp, LSU, Notre Dame, and maybe, I was talking to my dad about it, going to Florida for Friday Night Lights and possibly Clemson."
At this point in the process, Litton believes two schools are on the verge of offering.
"I really think Miami is close and Tennessee," Litton said.
With regards to Tennessee, he has been in regular contact with one of Derek Dooley's assistant coaches.
"I was talking with Coach (Jim) Chaney at Tennessee and he just told me they really want to get me there to throw with their guys," Litton said. "They will go from there."
As for the in-state Hurricanes, an offer from Al Golden and company would mean a lot to the signal-caller.
"That is like my dream offer," Litton said. "It would mean a lot. I know my parents would like for me to go to Miami. The education is a big part and my mom was a cheerleader there."
If the Hurricanes were to offer, Litton said he wouldn't immediately accept on the spot.
"I would wait," Litton said. "I will take my visits and do what I need to do.
As a sophomore, Litton completed 134-of-236 passes for 2,056 yards and 10 touchdowns.
