Springfield linebacker Davonte James
checks in as the nation’s No. 4 inside linebacker and No. 73 prospect
overall in the initial 247Sports class of 2014 national rankings.

The 6-foot-3, 220-pound James is also beginning to generate a little recruiting buzz.

Ohio State was recently by his school, and James said the
Buckeyes are a dream school for him. This past fall he attended an early
season game in Columbus, and he looks forward to returning for camp
this summer.

“I’ve always liked Ohio State since I was little,” James said. “I
really like their coaching staff and I like their school. It’s nice.”

Cincinnati, Illinois, Michigan and Notre Dame are a few of the
other schools that have been by during the current college coaches’
evaluation period.

As a junior, James had 52 tackles and an interception, and he’s looking forward to a big summer on the camp circuit.

“I know for sure I’m going to Cincinnati, probably Notre Dame,
I’m going to try and go to Illinois, and I’m going to a couple combines,
and I’m going to Kent State.”
