Center Joell James (6-10 285) of Palm Beach Gardens, FL was part of a state championship team this season averaging 9 points and 7 rebounds per game.
"I'm very aggressive and I sprint the floor," James said. "I never take a play off and I'm a hard worker. And I can move somone out of the way and score." James said he's basically a back to the basket center with a good drop step and jump hook.
He has offers from Clemson, USC, Miami, West Virginia, Florida and Florida State. He's also hearing from Duke, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Wake Forest and Maryland. He does not have favorites and has not taken any visits.
"I plan to visit South Carolina, Clemson, Wake Forest and the Florida schools," James said.

James said he has no special feeling for any of the schools and didn't grow up rooting for any particular school. He said he probably won't make a decision until next spring.
