    Scout.com is listing an offer from OSU for this 6'10"/280lb monster. This would be a big pick up. We need a true center with bulk for some inside intimidation. Amir Williams is long and a good shot blocker but I'm not sure that opposing players will be worried about taking it to the whole with A-Will in there. This beast would make a difference though.

    James had two football offers
    James has never played football. However, that didn't stop Oklahoma and Georgia from offering him scholarships for the sport sight unseen. The big fella isn't interested but he does own scholarships on the hardwood from Florida, Florida State, West Virginia, UNC and Ohio State. He's going to need visits because he's only seen the Gators campus.

    Here's a sneak preview of some prospects who will draw the attention of Matta and his assistants this month:

    Joel James
    Height, Weight: 6-10, 260
    Position: Center
    School: Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Dwyer
    ESPN Ranking: 10th among Cs, 36th overall in class of 2012
    Considering: Duke, Florida, Georgetown, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio State
    Camp This Week: adidas Invitational
    Outlook: James is an elite prospect but also falls into the traps of many young post men in that he sometimes fouls too much, still needs to develop his footwork and isn't quite ready for major minutes physically. Still, that will come, and it's not hard to become intrigued with his rebounding prowess and occasional nasty streak. Plus, James can score down low and runs the floor very well for a kid his size. He's the kind of rising star that every team in the country would like to have in wait for its front line.

    Joel has a final group of Florida, Florida State, North Carolina and Ohio State. He likes that Coach Matta is sending so many players to the pros but all of his friends are at Florida.

    I hate to lose this kid to UNC. I'd rather kids like this stay at hone if they don't pick OSU like Woodbury did.
