James Has NC State Among Favorites (w/ Video)

For Geron James, the talent is obvious, but the Wilmington (N.C.) Ashley wide receiver is working hard for the offers to start the way he would like. He has three leaders and an offer from one, but his work off the field could have a big impact on where he will end up playing on Saturdays.

"Recruiting is going well," says the 6-foot-4, 175 pounder. "It is still the grades and my GPA holding me back for Georgia Tech and NC State to offer. Virginia Tech and Maryland have offered me already, but I am doing work during summer school to get my grades up. I am taking world geography and another class next summer session.

James says Georgia Tech, NC State, and Virginia Tech are the teams to beat right now.

"NC State really embraced me when I was up there and treated me like family. They showed me the campus, around the stadium, and the players' lounge. It was like I was already home."

"With Georgia Tech, I like the big city, I like Atlanta. The environment is great, the coaches and players were pretty cool."

"I like the speed they play the game at Virginia Tech. They work hard, and I've just always liked the school."

Though James does have an offer from the Hokies, he would like to wait for his grades to get in proper order and hope the other schools offer as well.
