By ADAM ZAGORIAJosiah James, the 6-foot-5 point guard from Charleston (S.C.) Porter-Gaud School who won a gold medal with the USA at the FIBA Americas U18 Championship, has cut his list to nine schools.
James is down to Arizona, Clemson, Duke, Florida State, Kansas, Michigan State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.
Wherever he goes, James plans to bring a diverse skill set.
“Whatever they need me to do, I’m a versatile player,” he said. “I can handle the ball, I can shoot the ball, I can play defense. I can guard 1 through 4 at the college llevel and that’s definitely what I’m working on day in and day out, but I’ll defiintely do whatever they need me to do.”
