This marks the initial proposal from a school for the 6’2″ junior, who also excels in basketball for the Red Tornadoes.
He posted the news on his X profile.

Since his first year at Hickory, the young player has had a major impact on the basketball team. During his freshman year, he averaged 14.1 points per game. In his second year, he averaged 15 points and also earned the titles of conference tournament MVP, Dicks Sporting Goods Classic MVP, and all-Western Foothills 3A.
After joining the team, the Red Tornadoes have won 54 out of 58 games.
Alicia Abernathy, Little’s mother, was a basketball player at UNC-Charlotte and currently serves as the head coach for the girls’ basketball team at Hickory.
