Tony James has a few frontrunners but the 2014 four-star running back from Gainesville, Fla., plans to take official visits next season and not make a commitment for a while.
Ohio State, Florida and Florida State are some early leaders for the 5-foot-10, 163-pound recruit who also said Oregon would join that list if the Ducks offered.
James, who participated in the Army National Combine last week in San Antonio, said Miami is also very involved in his recruitment and many other programs are showing interest.
"The speed offense at Oregon really stands out," James said. "I'm a speed guy and I think I'd fit in well in that offense.
"Florida is in my hometown so I pretty much grew up with that school. Florida State because it's been a rival school and they always have good athletes. Ohio State because they have Urban (Meyer) and he's a spread/speed guy and he can coach."
So far, James lists offers from Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Miami, Ohio State, UCF and UCLA.
Oregon is showing the most interest out of the schools that have not offered and James said it's going to be crucial for him to take some official visits before he makes any decisions.
"I think I want to take official visits during my senior year," James said. "I want to hold off on my decision until my senior year also.
"Ohio State, Florida and FSU are recruiting me the hardest. Oregon keeeps asking questions and Miami is involved a lot, too."
In his junior season, James helped lead Gainesville to 14 wins. He's included in the early Rivals 250 for 2014.
