Nassir Little Picks Up Kansas, Arizona Offers; Will Visit Miami
By JACOB POLACHECKNassir Little, the 6-foot-6 small forward Orlando Christian (FL) Prep, picked up offers from Kansas and Arizona this week, and will take an unofficial visit to Miami on Saturday.
Little currently holds offers from nearly 30 schools including Arizona, Kansas, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, Auburn, Clemson, Creighton, Illinois, LSU, Memphis, Mississippi State, Missouri, NC State, Oklahoma State, Pittsburgh, SMU, South Carolina, St. John’s, Stanford, among others. He has also received interest from schools such as Duke and Kentucky.
He is currently ranked by 247Sports as the No. 36 overall player in the Class of 2018. Playing with 1Family on the Adidas Gauntlet this spring, Little has averaged 17.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists in eight games. Little is the 15th leading scorer on the circuit.
“UNC called and they seemed very intrigued about Nassir,” Brad Augustine, the program director of Little’s 1Family Hoops AAU program toldZAGSBLOG in May. “Coach (Roy) Williams will be back in July to see him. Coach (John)Calipari got a chance to see him in Dallas. Coach (Steve) Robinson, an assistant at UNC, he watched him in Dallas and Atlanta. (Cincinnati Head Coach) Mick Cronin and (Associate Head Coach) Larry Davis have repeatedly been down to Florida over the past few months to see Nasir and his family. They see Nas as a legitimate wing scorer who can defend the 1-4, similar to Kawhi Leonard.”Follow Jacob on TwitterAnd Like ZAGS on Facebook
