Ashley (Wilmington, NC) wide receiver Geron James may be very close to making a commitment. The 6-4, 178-pound prospect is hoping to make a decision by mid-January but may have one very soon if he cannot reschedule his official visit to Virginia Tech for either this weekend or next.
“I do have a visit scheduled on January 28th to Virginia Tech,” James said. “I’m trying to get that changed to an earlier date. N.C. State has a certain number of scholarship that they give out and they may not have any spots if I wait until the end of the month. I want to have a chance to decide between two schools.”
Although he has also taken an official visit to UNC, James has N.C. State and Virginia Tech as his top 2 schools. He took an official visit to N.C. State, the team that is his leader right now, last month.
“UNC was in my top 3, but right now it’s really between Virginia Tech and N.C. State,” James said. “N.C. State is the leader. I really like the coaching staff there. They have great coaches. Greg Williams is my main recruiter. They have great facilities and training equipment. I like the dorms – they are really like apartments more than dorms (laughs). The visit was good. I had a lot of fun with the team. I have lots of friends that go there. And, it’s only two hours away from home.”
If James cannot set another date with Virginia Tech, he will go ahead and commit to the Wolfpack.
“That’s how it’s going to be,” James said. “I want an earlier date to go up there. See, Virginia Tech and N.C. State are on a balance. N.C. State has more stuff into its bucket and its weighing their side down more. I want to see what Virginia Tech can get into their bucket. But I need to reschedule my visit.”
James has addressed the situation with Coach Wiles from Virginia Tech, however nothing has been rescheduled at this point. Coach Wiles would like for James to visit after the students have returned to school, which is on January 17th.
