LB Barry James (6-1 260) of Mobile, AL says Clemson and USC have shown various degrees of interest. James said Clemson offered him after his ninth grade but he's not sure the offer is still there since he hasn't heard much from the Tigers since then outside of some mail.
As for USC, James said recruiter Lorenzo Ward was by his school and indicated an offer to him thru his coach. James said he also has offers from Arkansas, Auburn, South Alabama and Arkansas State.
He's also getting interest from Alabama, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Tennessee, Notre Dame and Florida State. He attended junior day at Auburn and he plans to camp at Alabama, Mississippi State and Florida State.
Coaches from Florida State and Alabama also have been by his school. He does not have favorites.
