Four-star offensive lineman JaWuan James will take an unofficial visit to Clemson later this month.

"I am actually going to Clemson on the 28th," he told CUTigers in a recent interview. "I want to meet the offensive line coach. I am pretty sure I am going to like it a lot there."

This week has seen James take nothing short of a whirlwind visit tour around the south.

"I actually went to Georgia for junior day. I am going to Georgia Tech on Thursday. Then I am going back to Georgia on Friday. This weekend I am going to Alabama," said James.

The offer list is also growing by the week for the top lineman.

"I have 13 offers now. Yesterday Miami offered. Saturday I got offers from Oklahoma and Michigan State," he said.

A long and athletic left tackle, James has excellent feet and a flexible lower body. He is well-coached and uses good technique and initial effort, but needs to work on being more aggressive and finishing. Plays in a spread system that employs a more passive blocking scheme, so James will be behind a bit in terms of being a more complete offensive tackle. ('s Burke Hayes)
When asked about his current list of top schools, James responded, "I am mostly open right now. I don't want to close any doors."

What will be important when the Georgia native selects his college destination?

"I am looking for a school where the coaches are great," he said. "I want coaches that are great people as well as great coaches. I will be there for four years so I want to find a place where I get along with everyone.

"If I could play early that would be great. If there is a situation where there is a freshman that is starting and he will be in front of me until he finishes, that won't be what I am looking for."

Don't expect an early decision from the prize recruit.

"I want to take my official visits first. It will be later this year," said James.

Clemson recruiting coordinator/quarterbacks coach Billy Napier is recruiting the North Gwinnett (Ga.) standout for the Tigers.

"He is a real cool guy. He is real outgoing. He is a nice guy. I like what type of guy he is," said James.
