Early years

Litton attended Wharton High School in Tampa, Florida. As a senior in 2013, he threw for nearly 2,200 yards and 13 touchdowns.[1] He originally committed to play football for the USF Bulls, but decomitted before his senior year.[2] He then did not sign with any school on 2014 National Signing Day and announced that he would be attending a prep school and that he would reclassify into the class of 2015.[3] However, Litton chose not to attend prep school and instead committed to play football for the Marshall Thundering Herd as a class of 2014 recruit.[4]

College career

As a freshman in 2015, Litton was not originally the Thundering Herd's starting quarterback, but took over the starting role in the third game of the season.[5] In 11 games, Litton threw for 2,605 yards and 23 touchdowns, a Marshall freshman record.[6]

In 2016, as a sophomore, Litton started ten games at quarterback, missing two games due to both injury and suspension.[7][8] He threw for 2,612 yards and 24 touchdowns against nine interceptions.[9]

As a junior in 2017, Litton started all 13 of Marshall's games, completing 266 of 443 passes for 3,115 yards and 25 touchdowns.[10] After the season, Litton declared for the 2018 NFL Draft.[11]

Professional career
