Jawuan James is a mammoth offensive line prospect from Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett High School. James, 6-7 and 290 pounds, plays left tackle. This is one prospect with huge prospect.
"I think my strengths are my upside and my athletic ability," James said. "I get to the second level and can cut off the linebackers. I am an offensive tackle with defensive end speed. I do a good job of blocking. I think I am better at pass blocking. I need to work on getting stronger and becoming more dominant on every play."
According to James he's sitting on 28 scholarship offers at this time from such schools as Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Michigan State, Auburn, Georgia Tech, South Carolina and others.
"My top five would be Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Oregon and Tennessee right now.
"I have been to Alabama twice and I like them a lot. I have not been to a game or to the stadium. I do talk with the coaches a lot, especially coach (Kirby) Smart. I also love the facilities there.
"I have not been to Florida but I have talked with the coaches. I plan on going down there for spring football next month.
"I have been to Georgia three times and I like Athens. I like the coaches, especially coach (Mark) Richt. They are a great group of guys.
"I am looking at Oregon hard. They need offensive linemen and they play a similar style of offense that we do. I am going there this weekend and I'm excited about going west and checking them out and seeing what they have offer.
"I have not been to Tennessee yet but I am very interested and they are very interested in me. They need offensive linemen and I would have a chance to play early."
James has made unofficial visits to Auburn, South Carolina, Clemson, Georgia, and Alabama. He will try and attend spring practices at Georgia, Florida and South Carolina.
