North Fulton QB commits to Lane Kiffin, FAU

After previously committing to Illinois, a former Roswell High quarterback is joining Lane Kiffin in Boca Raton.

Lane Kiffin might not be an SEC coach anymore, but he’s still recruiting in the conference’s territory.

Earlier this week, Cordel Littlejohn — who quarterbacked the Roswell High School football team this past season — verbally committed to Kiffin’s Florida Atlantic University Owls.

Before reopening his commitment, Littlejohn was headed to Big Ten country, having committed to Illinois.

In a note posted to Twitter on Jan. 28, Littlejohn thanked God, his parents, coaches and a friend, Tyrone Hopper. The three-star prospect added that he is "110 percent committed to" FAU.

“This has been a long process for me and my family and I am thankful for everything,” Littlejohn wrote.

With Littlejohn under center, Roswell went 3-8 this past season as the 6-foot-4 quarterback tallied more than 1,700 yards of total offense and 14 touchdowns, according to MaxPreps. After football season, he returned to Lincolnton, North Carolina, according to the Palm Beach Post.

Littlejohn also had an offer from Tulane and visited Duke and Clemson, according to 247sports.

In Kiffin’s first season at FAU, the Owls went 11-3, won the Conference USA title and the Boca Raton bowl. The Owls open next season against Oklahoma.
