Before running back Jordon James (5-10, 190, 4.4) from Corona, Calif., broke his arm in the third quarter of his fourth game, he was leading the Golden State in rushing with 1,132 and 10 touchdowns. He is now racking up offers as easily as gaining yards, picking up three in the last three days getting his scholie totals to 10.
In the last three days, James received an offer from San Diego State on Monday, Arizona State on Tuesday and his most recent offer was from UCLA yesterday (Wednesday March, 11th).
"The UCLA offer made me feel good," James said. "I was very excited with UCLA's offer. For one, UCLA is close to home and UCLA has a good football tradition. The coaches at UCLA are nice too.
"I like all the schools that have offered me though," James said. "I'm going to make my announcement for the school that I choose at the Under Armor All-American game in January."
Besides UCLA, Arizona State and San Diego State, James has offers from Arizona, Cal, Oregon, Stanford, Washington, Colorado and Tennessee.
Corona head coach John Brandom is convinced that he knows why James is such a hot commodity on the recruiting trail.
"Jordon has everything you could want in a running back," Brandom said. "He's fast, strong, cuts on a dime, runs with power and can score every time he touches the ball."
"Jordon is the complete package as a running back," Brandom said. "He's explosive, he can accelerate and has great vision."
"I can't think of one negative thing about Jordon," Brandom said. "He has outstanding character and he's a great student, too, who carries a 3.6 GPA."
What is James looking for in school?
"I really want to have an opportunity to compete for a starting spot as a freshman," James said. "I also very interested in a school with good academics and a good coaching staff."
"I'm going to take all five of my visits so that I can make an informed decision."
James is planning on taking in UCLA's camp in June while there is a chance that he will attend camps at Arizona and Cal. He is planning on attending the SPARQ camp at Long Beach City College later this month and he follow that up the invitational NIKE Camp to be held in Los Angeles in April.
