When Phenom Hoops got a glimpse of 2022 6’2 Zocko Littleton at Paul Biancardi’s camp over the summer, one had to come away impressed with his ability to score the ball. He has continued that same success in high school at South Cobb, averaging 15 points per game as a sophomore for the Eagles who are 27-2 on the season.
Littleton has been racking up offers over the past few months, now giving him double-digit offers. Xavier, Mississippi State, UAB, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Troy, Tulane, Mercer, Ole Miss, Alabama, and Seton Hall have all joined his list of offers and more could be coming.
Recently speaking with Littleton, he talked about his recruitment and his latest thoughts on what has been going on with him.
“Seton Hall is the most recent offer,” Littleton said. “I really liked that offer; I watch them all the time and my favorite player is actually Myles Powell. It was big for me. I just love their guard style of play and they just said to me to keep up the good work. They really think I can fit their system.”
Littleton also mentioned Alabama is high up on his list as well right now.
“Every time I’ve visited down there, it felt like they really want me there and it just feels like a family atmosphere,” he said. “It is still very early for me but I just like their style of play, as well how they get lots of buckets in transition and how they shoot a lot of three’s…”
The sophomore guard has visited Alabama three different times already, while also adding in a visit to Georgia in the past but he doesn’t have any upcoming visits in the future as of right now.
Outside Littleton’s offers, schools like Memphis, Clemson, Morehead State, and Cincinnati have also expressed interest his way, saying that they really like his game.
“They have to come see me after their season and some say they want the head coach to come out and see me,” Littleton replied.
As far as what he hoping to learn and see from these schools early on, it is a blend of early playing time and style of play.
“Just whatever school that will let me play my game and where I can play right away at. (I’m looking for) a fast pace system that loves shooters and is good with transition points.”
