is just a sophomore, but he is already gaining the attention of programs across the southeast.

The 6-2, 215-pound outside linebacker out of Atlanta (GA) Mays picked up his second offer last weekend when Clemson offered him at junior day.

Georgia Tech was his first offer, but Little told TigerNet recently that he liked what he saw on his first visit to Clemson.

“I like the football fraternity they have there,” Little said. “Everybody there acts like they are family. I also love the stadium, and they have the new indoor practice facility and I really like that. It's nice.”

told Little that he and the coaching staff liked what they saw of his highlight tape.

“I was at junior day and Coach Venables made the offer,” Little said. “Coach Mike ReedMike Reed

was also there when they made the offer. They told me I was a good player and when they watched my highlights, and that I would fit in at Clemson.”

The good news for Clemson fans is that Little is being compared to one of Clemson’s current stars.

“They say that I remind them of Vic Beasley,” Little said. “He’s definitely a beast. I wasn't really watching any linebackers because I was watching Vic Beasley the whole time.”

Little is getting attention from Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and N.C. State, but he said he hopes to make it up to Clemson for the annual Orange and White game to see more of what the Tigers have to offer.

“I feel good about the offer,” he said. “I like the campus, and I hope to get back for the spring game. Hopefully after that I will have a better idea of what I want to do.”
