The soon to be freshman is a 2023 5’9″, 145-pounder who is headed to play at Olympia this fall.
He started playing basketball at the age of 3. James Jr. says his dad has a great athlete mindset and the best advice that he’s given him was to always stay in attack mode.
James Jr. attended Chain of Lakes Middle School and is fresh off a successful summer with a highly talented E1T1 Rebels group.
“This past AAU season I’ve seen the most growth in my speed of play,” James Jr. told Prep Hoops. “I have learned that when you play together as a team you win more. If you want to be successful you have to play fast and at a high level.”
He says his expectations for his debut varsity campaign are to be a great point guard and lead Olympia.
No offers or interest have come yet for the 2023 prospect.
James Jr. pointed to his ballhandling and overall IQ as his top strengths right now. He’s aiming to improve his knowledge of the game.
His dad had high praise for his son.
“He’s on schedule to be a future NBA point guard for many years to come,” James Sr. said.
After going 14-12 two seasons ago, Olympia was 6-21 a year ago. The Titans return a nice mix of 2021 athletes and the speed and overall athleticness of James Jr. will be a true difference-maker. Expect him to come in and make this team a lot quicker in transition. It should be a fun season to see what he can do right out of the gates.
