His coach, Ron Naclerio, said several schools are already showing interest.
Naclerio said Louisville and Virginia Tech have already been at the school to meet Southerland, who possesses a nice jumper for a player his size.
"Virginia Tech has been to the school twice," stated Naclerio. "And coach Pitino has visited the school too."
Southerland, who wore number 93 at the ABCD camp this past weekend, averaged four points and three rebounds in 16 minutes of play. In a camp that usually sees guards dominate offensively, Southerland did well enough for schools to watch him again this summer. James shot 47 percent from the field.
"He can be a good player," Naclerio said of Southerland, who averaged 14.5 point and 8.8 rebounds as a sophomore. "He has to work hard."
