According to 247 Sports, James is believed to be the highest-ranked player to sign with an HBCU in modern history.
Like his father, James is a running back, and is rated as a three-star recruit by 247 Sports. He ran for 750 yards and nine touchdowns for Treasure Valley High School in Port Saint Lucie, Fla. in 2020, helping the team to a 9-1 record.
The elder James was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame earlier this year, delivering one of the ceremony’s most memorable speeches. His son appears to have a bright future ahead of him as well.
