One of more storied programs in the state of Texas is again home to a top prospect in tight end Adam James.
The Celina, Texas., prospect is receiving interest from numerous programs across the Lone Star state and much of the Big 12. However, one team is not only the leader but a childhood favorite as well.
"Yes, it's Texas A&M by far," James said. "Ever since I went to a game there when I was like five I've wanted to go there. Last year I got invited to come up to one of their games and I just really liked it."
If the Aggies were to offer, James said it would be hard to resist.
"Yeah, I probably would commit if that happened," James said about a possible Aggie offer. "The tradition is what got me. It's just amazing."
Texas, Oklahoma State, TCU, Baylor, Iowa, and others are actively sending him countless amounts of mail. Being the son of former NFL great Craig James also has his father's alma mater SMU in hot pursuit.
However, this young man wants to do things on his own.
"By now I've learned to overcome what people say," James said. "They try to tell me that all my success is because of my dad but he's not on the field blocking and catching the ball for me."
"Everyone expects me to be like him, but we're very different even in body build and everything."
Though no offers have been extended, the first could be around the corner. James also shines on the diamond leading the Bobcats this year on the mound in a big way.
The Bobcat baseball team just earned a piece of first place in District 13-2A with a victory over district co-leader Ponder last week with James closing out the win.
