PREVIOUS EVALUATION OF BRANDON JAMES' INDIVIDUAL GAME: Brandon is a player who can produce a a double-double. He has done so over the past couple of years.
James makes his living near the basket, not afraid to mix it up against the bigger bodies in the paint. If a college is looking for someone who doesn't mind the dirty work near the rim, James is a player to watch and evaluate.
