His official visit date is different than originally reported

Earlier this week, ESPN reported that four-star forward Nassir Little would officially visit the Arizona Wildcats on Oct. 26-28.

However, Little’s father told Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog.com that his son will be visiting Tucson Oct. 20-22 instead.

The second date makes more sense since that’s the weekend Arizona is hosting its annual Red-Blue game, which is often used as a recruiting tool.

Little, the No. 22 player in the 2018 class, recently trimmed his list to five schools: Arizona, Duke, North Carolina, Miami (FL), and Georgia Tech.

Little attends Orlando Christian Prep in Florida, and early returns in 247Sports’ Crystal Ball project he will land at North Carolina, with Arizona as the second likeliest destination.

Here is what the folks at Draft Express wrote about Little in June:

Listed at 6’6 by a number of sources but looking a shade taller than that, Little stands out on first glance with his strong frame and long arms. Averaging 17.3 points and 7 rebounds per game for 1 Family on the adidas Gauntlet circuit this spring, Little is a capable scorer who plays with impressive energy on both ends. A capable set and pull-up shooter who does much of his scoring attacking closeouts and using head fakes and jabs to get his defender off balance in one-on-one situations, Little contributed in a variety of ways today, including one notable dunk that came over a defender on an off-the-backboard assist from David Duke.

The Orlando Christian Prep standout also made his mark on the defensive end, really getting after it. Flying around all over the place trying to make plays, Little seized the golden opportunity this event presents for him to introduce himself to NBA scouts.
