Yale lands DL James
James recently finished his senior season at McKinley High in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where he earned all-division honors. Rivals rates him as a two-star recruit. He had several Ivy offers along with others like South Alabama, McNeese State and Bryant.
Check out some highlights of James.
“You know it’s an academic school when you go there,” James told the New Orleans Advocate. “But when I got to campus there were flags about every football game. That was one of the first things I saw. I didn’t expect that, and I liked that.
“I liked the football players and the students. I got to sit in on classes while I was there and talk to students. They didn’t know who I was or that I was there about football. All of them said positive things and that meant a lot.”
James said this about his decision on Twitter…
I am proud to say that I will continue my academic and athletic career at Yale.For an complete list of Yale recruits, check out the previous post.
