Where would we be without wishful thinking?

If we could get this guy to overlook Pennsylvania schools and Miami, and come to GW, a lot of the doubts about MoJo as a recruiter would certainly die down. This would be great!

Can't teach 6'9 258.
Isn't that a big Philadelphia program? Sounds familiar anyway.
At initial glance, sounds pretty good.
Since he has an offer, would commit immediately and enjoy his summer and senior year while going to GW, the best combination of basketball, academic and playing time choice anyone could have.

Yeah BigFan, Neumann Goretti is(or maybe was) a big-time powerhouse type of school in Philadelphia that has produced lots of college players. You'd always see them playing in big tournaments/1-day events here locally or nationally through the years. Looking at the verbalcommits link that DMVPiranha posted, Marcus Littles is being pursued by a bunch of A-10 schools, along with Miami, Temple and Penn State. That's a pretty good list of schools, he'd be a great signing for GW.

Getting Littles would be a GREAT addition to the 2018 class.

Looks like he averaged 5.8 & 5.4 playing for Team Final in the EYBL this year. Haven't had much luck with Team Final players recently.

Solid post who would be a great addition. We get Littles to go with Mezzie and Shandon and you've got a very good class for GW.

Reminds me of Mo Alie-Cox.
Hopefully he commits this weekend.
bm9/20/2017 8:23:18 PM
Not Alie-Cox. Saw him in HS and he was a lot more energetic. I thought HS Marfo at first glance.
the dude9/20/2017 8:28:31 PM
Did Mo Alie end up on an NFL practice roster? GW could use a Mo Alie. Another Marfo, no thx. Hope this guy is more of a Mo Alie and less of a Marfo.

Agree with BM. I had posted on another thread last month talking about the prospects that his game resembled Kevin's. We have been pursuing Littles fairly hard after offering him so hopefully good news is on the way. Definitely in need of a frontcourt player next year. I also still somewhat believe that Kevin didn't get much of an opportunity to progress (that Florida State game is an example even against backups that's good competition) and maybe an offseason might have helped. You can never have too many athletes but I would be satisfied with a reliable rebounder given the loss of Collin this summer.
Mo Alie got hurt in the offseason so the Colts waived him with an injury designation. Don't think any team claimed him so he'll probably end up on the practice squad. Tight end is the perfect position given how many players transitioned from college basketball to the NFL successfully at that position and Cox has the right build. Antonio Gates (Kent State) is probably the most recent success story coming from a mid-major (and recently set the NFL record for most touchdowns by a tight end), but Tony Gonzalez (California), Jimmy Graham (Miami FL), Martellus Bennett (Texas A&M), and Julius Thomas (Portland State) are other examples.

Amazing, basically every elite TE of the last decade+ (save perhaps Witten)
adclub9/21/2017 5:15:08 PM
Here's to hoping his weekend visit goes well. There's no better time to visit DC than late September/early October! Come on Marcus, we need you!
the mv9/21/2017 10:36:48 PM
Nothing elite about Gronk, I guess.
