Clint Brewster Recruiting Insider


4-7 Round Day 3

James has a moldable frame with long limbs and an athletic build. A two-way high school player, James makes some high-level acrobatic plays as a wide receiver and wildcat quarterback on offense. At linebacker, James is a natural playmaker with elite closing ability and power upon contact. He's extremely active and sniffs out plays before they happen with outstanding instincts. Possesses a great motor and tenacity to get to the action. Able to get around blocks with fluid agility and quickness in tight spaces. Accelerates to the ball and doesn't wait for the play to come to him. Has the desired urgency and suddenness to beat blockers to the spot. Shows strength and power when he needs it. Very adept in coverage and takes excellent zone drops and angles. Very versatile in the way he can affect the line of scrimmage and get in the backfield on blitzes but also drop into coverage like a defensive back. Times his blitzes well and can shoot the A-gap. Accelerates from sideline to sideline.

Athletic Background

Two-way playmaker who has played RB, WR, and multiple spots on defense.
