James didn't hide the fact that he has to get his academic house in order. "I didn't take academics seriously enough up until now, but I plan on changing that at Hargrave."
If he does get his academic situation in order, it's likely many high majors will take a look at him. James is a very talented shot-blocker who had the athletic highlight of the Weber tournament with a tremendous put-back dunk off of a rebound as his team took apart their first round opponent Philly Hoops, 61-38.
James runs the floor well and had great basketball instincts. Besides polishing his academic standing his game should just get better while he is at Hargrave.
Right now James is being recruited most heavily by Illinois, Wichita State, Penn State, and George Mason, but is hearing from Big East schools, Pittsburgh, Villanova, St. John's, and Connecticut.
"I am wide open to new schools who want to get involved," he said. "I have two years before I go to college."
