James likes North Carolina so much that the 6-foot-4, 175-pounder has scheduled an official visit to Chapel Hill on December 17th.
Apparently the coaching staff was recruiting the Scout.com two-star prospect pretty hard despite the rough start and then kept on him. In addition to regular phone call conversations, assistant coach Brad Lawing made an in-home visit to James's Wilmington house recently.
"They contact me two or three times every week," remarked James. "Sunday the coach [Brad Lawing] came by my house and we talked. Just talking about the season and how I have a scholarship there and stuff I need to take care of."
James has also set up an official visit with N.C. State (Dec. 10th) and figures to reschedule an official with Virginia Tech after recently canceling while also making arrangements with South Carolina.
