James has new visit plans

Carmel (Ind.) High three-star athlete Isaac James has plans to take additional visits before making a final decision.

Three-star athlete Isaac James stars on the No. 1 ranked team in the state of Indiana. On Friday night, James had a touchdown run of 8-yards in a 28-6 win for Carmel against Noblesville in the first round of the 6-A state playoffs. Carmel will play host to Hamilton Southeastern (Ind.) Fishers next Friday in the second round.

"We started off slowly (Carmel only led 7-6 at half), and we had two turnovers on offense, so at halftime we talked about focus and our mental mistakes," James said. "They (Noblesville) didn't want their season to end and they give us all they had."

James has taken one official visit thus far, to Wisconsin for the Badgers' win over Illinois on Oct. 11. Along with Wisconsin, Indiana, Missouri and Northwestern make up the 5-foot-11, 180-pound athlete's top four. A decision seemed possible following his visit to Wisconsin, but James has decided to take more time to go through the recruiting process.

"I'm taking more officials," James said. "I've been talking to Wisconsin a lot lately. I plan on visiting Northwestern and Indiana and possibly Missouri. "I talked to Northwestern recently, and I think it's in three weeks in early December," James said. "Indiana is also the first week in December."

James also may make a return trip to Wisconsin.

"Possibly, it would have to be on an unofficial visit, though," James said. "I would definitely go back there on a visit."

James is a three-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 89 wide receiver in the class of 2015. Missouri and Wisconsin are recruiting James to play defensive back.
