Georgia Tech already has two running backs committed for 2013.
If they are looking for another one, Quinten James is interested.
The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder from North Cobb High School has around 20 offers, with Miami as his leader over Mississippi State.
But if Georgia Tech calls?
“I don’t know if they have any spots left but I’ve very interested in Georgia Tech because it’s a great school and not that far away. I already have a high school teammate playing there and I know a lot of the players. I haven’t heard much from them since they got [two commitments at running back], but I’d love to hear from them. I’m definitely interested.”
With his size and speed, James arguably has more upside potential than any other RB in Georgia. At the RisingSeniors.com all-star game last December, he impressed scouts in practices by beating 5-star linebacker Reuben Foster to the corner on several running plays.
Ironically, James may end up playing linebacker in college. Most of the schools, including Miami and Mississippi State, are recruiting James as an “athlete” who can play running back or outside linebacker.
His preference? ““I prefer playing running back, but I’ve been developing my skills at linebacker. I could see myself playing outside linebacker at the next level.”
James said he would also be receptive to interest from Missouri and Texas A&M. He will likely make his college decision in early October.
