High majors have gotten off to an early start with 2022 prospect Zocko Littleton Jr.
The 6-2 point guard played 17U this summer with Team Carroll Premier, while most in his class were playing 15U.
“Playing up wasn’t that hard because I played last year with my dads team, the GA Canes,” he said. “That really improved me by getting me use to the game speed in high school ball [because] when I play my grade, it makes the game move slower.”
Littleton Jr averaged 10.7 points and 3.3 rebounds during the live period at the Adidas Summer Championships. This includes a game where he finished with 17 points and knocked down four three-pointers–Mississippi State offered as a result.
“I didn’t know it was coming,” he explained. “I just thought to myself like, all the work I put in is paying off.”
He had a similar reaction when Xavier offered as well.
“I just got in the gym and started to grind,” he said. “And work even harder.”
There’s a lot to like about the 2022 prospect from Georgia. At such a young age, he does a lot of things well and that has drawn coaches in to see him play.
“I think my strength is being vocal on the floor,” Littleton Jr said. “I can shoot the ball at a high clip and I like to get to my spots.”
When asked where he’s most comfortable at on the floor, the floor general replied, “Wherever I’m hitting at, to be honest, if it ain’t getting stopped why change it?”
