Littleson Pops for Atlantic-10
Inside Prep Sports/By TJ Kelley
A true testament to hard work came to fruition this spring when Rochester Adams' 2016 guard Spencer Littleson was offered by St. Josephs in April. That offered was followed by Oakland, Lafayette, Binghampton, and ultimately Duquesne, where Littleson visited this past weekend.
Wednesday evening he announced that he would attend the Pittsburgh, PA. school.
Inside Prep Sports caught up with Littleson and his answers were consistent with most commitments, "The opportunity to play early. I liked the coaches and their style of play."
Littleson has taken great strides in his ability to make mid-range and perimeter shots both off the catch and creating his own shots in an efficient manner over the past year.
Rochester Adams' head coach John Hall had this to say about his standout senior, "The kid got exactly what he deserved. (I'm) very happy for Spencer."
"He found a place that he was very comfortable and that wanted him very badly."
"Spencer has turned himself into a legitimate Division 1 player by shear force of will and work ethic. He has spent more hours in the gym training than anyone I have ever coached. Spencer has been a leader on our team for three years. he has a chance to be one of the best players in school history."
Rochester Adams has never been a basketball hotbed but has emerged over the past couple of years compiling records of 16-5 in 2013-'14 and 15-8 in 2014-'15; two years where Spencer averaged 14 points followed up by 20 points per game his junior year.
Littleson is the #2 shooting guard in Michigan's 2016 class and #6 prospect overall.
