South Florida gets 3-star hometown quarterback
Litton released the news by tweeting a picture of himself and Taggart with the caption, "Officially a USF BULL !!!!"
Listed at 6-foot-5, 190 pounds, Litton is a three-star prospect and the No. 36 overall pro-style quarterback, according to the 247Sports Composite Ratings. He is the all-time leading passer at Wharton, completing 315-of-546 passes (57.7 percent) of his attempts for 4,788 yards and 33 touchdowns.
Anything he does this upcoming season as a senior will just add to his legacy as a high school standout.
Litton has a long frame with a lot of room to fill out, needing to gain 20-30 pounds in order to be able to withstand next-level hits from outside rushers. As he continues to grow and get stronger, so will his arm—which is already his best characteristic as a quarterback.
He has all the physical tools and upside, but is very raw and needs a lot of work with his mechanics. Litton tends to have a baseball-like throwing motion and has to improve his footwork, but both are very coachable.
Litton's composite rating is three points higher (.030) than his 2013 counterpart—three-star Michael White—who could likely serve as his future competition for the starting job.
Florida Atlantic, Florida International, LSU, Western Kentucky and Western Michigan also offered Litton.
