Cards, others keep an eye on IN PG Dominic James

Richmond (IN) High point guard Dominic James already has two Big Ten offers, and programs like Louisville, Florida, and Kansas will keep a close eye on the 5'10 junior this spring.

At 5-foot-10, this is an important AAU season for Richmond, Indiana point guard Dominic James and will likely impact whether or not he'll play at the highest level in college.

James, who averaged 23 points per game as a junior, is considered one of the top three juniors in the Hoosier state, along with 6'9 Josh McRoberts (Duke), and 6'11 Luke Zeller. And he already has two Big Ten offers from Iowa and Ohio State.

"There's really no list at this point," Richmond head coach Chad Bolser said. "And that's more by design. He's a 5'10 point guard and that gives him some leeway in terms of when and where people are going to project him."

Besides Iowa and Ohio State, Purdue, Marquette, and Notre Dame have been the schools most active with James to this point.

"Those are the programs that have really gotten after Dominic and they've all been to see him during our games," Bolser said.

Behind those five programs, mid-majors like Ball State, Southern Illinois, and Cleveland State have all offered and are hoping James falls to their level.

Kansas has been out to see James during Richmond's practices and have kept in contact. Louisville and Florida have shown some interest, and according to Bolser, the Gators have recently turned up their interest in James.

"Florida has been in contact a lot recently," Bolser said.

James will play for the Spiece Select and he'll display his talents at the Kingwood Classic, the AAU Nationals, Nike Camp, and has been invited to try out for the U.S. Olympic Developmental team.

"Those events will really allow him to see where his next step is and what his true level [in college] will be."
