Power 4 Starter

Measuring in at 6-foot-4 and half along with weighing 248-pounds these are very promising numbers for an emerging player. The 80-inch wingspan, 10- inch hand and size 16 shoes speak to the growth potential that will come as he matures and develops in the weight room once he gets to college. With a good frame that has good development already for a highschool prospect. He is more developed right now in his lower body where you have good definition in his legs. As he hits the weights in his upper body you should see good mass and defined muscles in that area.

James has solid flexibility in his knees with some stiffness in his ankles. He has a smooth running style with a good get off that flashes some suddenness. For a guy with a long build has above average change of direction. Uses his length and wingspan to his advantage when taking on blockers and not letting them get into his body. Plays with a motor and good effort, willing to chase plays away. Good pad level as he comes off the ball and engages with the offensive lineman. As he gets stronger his punch on the opponent will have more of an effect, The fact that he uses his hands well at this stage of his career is a positive sign.

James is a guy with a lot of potential and positive traits. His body type and physical maturity into college will enable him to fit in either an odd or even front defensive line. He is a player that can play either end or become a 3-tech with the amount of weight that he may gain.
