Commitment Highlights: James Summers

Greensboro (NC) Page standout James Summers is one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the state. Here are exclusive highlights of the recent NC State commitment in action!

Name: James Summers
Hometown: Greensboro, North Carolina
High School: Page High School
Position: Quarterback
Vitals: 6'3/195

In 2010, Summers led Page to a 10-3 record, accounting for 2,890 yards of total offense and 36 touchdowns (21 passing, 16 rushing).

"I started playing quarterback my freshman year when I was the backup and I also played receiver," Summers previously told Pack Pride. "The hard part of transitioning all the way to quarterback was getting all the fundamentals right with my mechanics and footwork. Making plays I could do, and as far as knowing where everybody has to be and the plays, that came easy to me too.

"I grew up more playing basketball and focusing on that. I wasn't even going to play football in high school, but I chose to do it and now I have some scholarship offers."

The 6-foot-3, 195-pounder is an explosive athlete capable of playing quarterback, wide receiver, or defensive back.

"The NC State coaches told me they are recruiting him as an athlete, but they haven't ruled out quarterback," said coach Gillespie. "But, most schools were recruiting him as an athlete."

Summers held offers from NC State, North Carolina, Clemson, and East Carolina when he committed to the Wolfpack.
