After picking up offers from Georgia and Oklahoma last week, Durham (N.C.) Hillside wide receiver Greg Little added another big scholarship this week from Penn State. The Rivals100 star was thrilled to land the offer from the Nittany Lions.
"They offered me on Wednesday and I was actually at a track meet when my coach called and told me," he said. "It was overwhelming because I thought everyone had pretty much offered that was going to and began to start nailing down my list of schools. Now I'm opening it back up to everyone."
What does Little think of Joe Paterno's team?
"They have a real exciting offense that doesn't back down to anyone," he said. "They go after you and have a wonderful tradition with coach Paterno there. Penn State is definitely a team I'd like to be apart of.
"I was very impressed with what they have done especially last year making the BCS. I think they could have had an even better team if Derrick Williams was healthy the whole year."
The 6-foot-3, 208-pounder confirmed he hasn't talked to their coaches yet, but plans to on Monday.
"I want to talk to them more about the offer real soon," he said. "I'm looking to go out there on an unofficial visit probably for a one day camp this summer. I want to see what they have to offer and show them what I can do."
In general, what is Little looking for out of a college?
"I think the first thing for me is the coaches. I want a coach that has been there for a while and is down to earth. I want to be able to talk to them about anything and be open with them," he said. "The other big factor for me is playing time and then I'm interest in the whole school. I want to know if I'll be comfortable there if I get hurt."
Currently Little holds approximately 23 offers. This spring he's looking to improve his stock even more by attending the Nike Camp at Clemson, Shrine Bowl combine in Fayetteville and possibly the Elite College Combine at Rutgers.
