Info:  Marques Little may just be starting his high school career this fall but he is already starting to make some noise in the recruiting world.  Marques had an excellent outing at the latest National Underclassmen Combine event at Matawaan Regional High School in April.  He is a natural athlete and a tremendously hard worker.  Marques gets private strength and conditioning training from a well-reputable training company called Fear None Training headed by Coach Greg Pease in New Jersey.  This Christian based training company helps mold young men to be good citizens and better football players through spiritual lessons and hardcore strength and conditioning training.  Marques currently has a 3.4 GPA and would like to major in Sports Medicine in college.  Holding an outstanding GPA like he does is a testament to his level of maturity that is above his age. 

Marques has big dreams for after college and isn’t relying on just an NFL contract he knows academics is important to his future.    

When speaking about the importance of academics Marques stated, “academics are good just incase I get hurt I have something to fall back on. “ Doctor or Sports Analyst” are possible future career aspirations according to this talented player.

Marques dream school is Miami but he is open to all schools that want to give him a chance to play at the next level.  “Academics student body and location” are some key aspects to picking a college according to Marques. 

Growing up he enjoyed watching Marshall Faulk play but compares his playmaking abilities to former West Virginia RB Noel Devine and idolizes NFL running back Reggie Bush. 

Marques Little’s biggest goal in college besides earning a degree is to win the Heisman Trophy.  He knows winning the coveted trophy is a feat that only the best-of-the-best can achieve so he is working diligently on improving his game and making sure his character is ahead of his peers. 
“Speed more weapons where teams can't key on anyone” Marques said about what he brings to the college level.  Knowing what you bring to the next level is one thing but being focused on what you need to work on to get to the next level is another and Marques knows exactly what that is, “getting stronger” “speed and more speed” are aspects to improve on according to Marques. 
Analysis:  Even though he hasn’t played a single down in high school Marques does have the potential to be a good player. He has good feet, good movement, fluid hips and is strong.  Michigan Sports Zone will have more updated about this young player in the future as we follow his high school career and eventual recruitment.
