While James won't camp at either, he's looking forward to spending time with the coaches at each school.
"UCLA and USC are both recruiting me pretty hard," said James. "Coach (Adrian) Klemm and Coach (Taylor) Mazzone are recruiting me for UCLA and came by in the spring. Coach (Tim) Drevno and Coach Tui (Marques Tuiasosopo) are recruiting me for USC."
James said he also plans to visit both schools officially.
"I'm going to take all five of my official visits to the out-of-state schools and then visit Utah unofficially," said James.
He visited Ohio State earlier this week.
"It went really well," said James. "I went there for one day and met with Coach (Urban) Meyer. It was really cool."
James said he'll wait to visit Oklahoma and Oregon until his official visits.
Next up after his trip to Southern California is a week in Beaverton at The Opening.
"I'm so excited and just counting down the days until it happens," said James. "It's a competitors dream to go against the best and some of the best player in the nation."
