This past weekend, George Washington got its 3rd, and biggest, commitment from the Class of 2018. Marcus Littles, a 6-9, 260 lb. forward from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania chose the Colonials over a number of solid programs including Miami (FL), Penn State, and A-10 rivals Saint Joseph’s and Saint Louis. Littles is a 4 star recruit according to Rivals; his size makes him an absolute force in the paint at the high school level.
Per a source, Neumann-Goretti (Pa.) 2018 C Marcus Littles has committed to George Washington.

Littles is a huge pick up for Maurice Joseph, because it shows the progress he’s made on the recruitment trail. Remember: the 2017-18 season will be Joseph’s first as full-time head coach of the Colonials. Before you make any serious judgments on MOJO’s capabilities, you have to let him fill the gaps. Commits like Littles should do just that. While the Colonials will lack size this season (the transfers of Kevin Marfo and Collin Smith hurt), Littles will undoubtedly help GW reload in the post in the coming seasons.
