Little to South Bend

Durham (N.C.) Hillside athlete Greg Little didn't quite finish things the last time he called a press conference when he remained undecided between North Carolina and Notre Dame. However, on Thursday the 6-foot-2, 214-pounder finally make his choice known.

"I've committed to Notre Dame," said Little on Wednesday night, who had more than 20 offers. "It's the biggest national stage there is and it's a great challenge. Every game is on television and watched by everyone. It's also a great opportunity to play in a pro-style offense under Charlie Weis and become a better player.

"I like the academics and I like the fact that I can leave the area and show all the younger kids in Durham that you can be successful anywhere you want to be. Finally, playing with Jimmy Clausen is a great opportunity. He's a great quarterback and that's important."

Little explained why he wasn't quite ready to decide the last time.

"I thought I knew where I was going to go but I kept having different thoughts so I decided to delay it. That wasn't easy to do but I'm glad I did it now. It allowed me to think a bit more and make sure of my decision."

Little will play wide receiver at Notre Dame.

"That's where I want to play in college and I know coach Weis and the staff can get me to the next level. And catching passes from Jimmy will help as well."

Little announced his decision at the same time he received his U.S. Army All American Bowl jersey.
