Ashley High School (Wilmington, NC) wide receiver Geron James has used his outstanding size (6-4) and speed (4.41 in the 40) combination to have an excellent senior season. In 2004, James has caught 31 passes for 730 yards and 14 touchdowns in helping Ashley to a 7-4 regular season record.
His abilities have helped him earn scholarship offers from Division I-A schools including East Carolina, North Carolina, N.C. State, South Carolina and Virginia Tech. Of the programs involved, James says his “top 2” schools are N.C. State and Virginia Tech. Though he hasn’t made any official visits yet, he may be close to setting one with one of his top programs.
“I haven’t taken or set any official visits because I’ve really been focusing on my senior English project,” James said. “I’m waiting until I get some free time to do that. I have been planning an official visit on December 10th to Virginia Tech. I’m just planning it right now. It’s not set.”
James says he has never made a visit to Blacksburg. That will likely change later this month, when he’s scheduled to come on November 27th for the UVa/Virginia Tech game. Without having visited Tech, James explains what he likes about the Hokies.
“I love the team,” James said. His primary recruiter is Charley Wiles. “I like the speed of the team. I like their running game and their passing game. They’re going to have Michael Vick’s brother Marcus back next year.”
James explained what he likes about N.C. State as well.
“I like the coaching staff and the atmosphere,” James said. “I’ve been to N.C. State many times. It’s so close and I’ve had a lot of exposure to it. I’ve seen it a lot and I like it, but I haven’t been to others to find out what else is out there. I’m planning to see that once I go to Virginia Tech. That will then help me make my decision.”
The 3-star receiver is not sure when he will announce his decision. He may take an official visit to N.C. State as well before committing anywhere, but hasn’t decided. He is also considering taking visits to other schools on his list, but for now N.C. State and Virginia Tech appear to be the clear leaders.
