                St. Xavier junior OL Matt James has offers from UC, Illinois and Tennessee, St. X football coach Steve Specht said in an e-mail this afternoon.

                James, who is 6 feet 7 and about 290 pounds, is one of the state's top 2010 prospects.

                      I wish I had paid attention when he came into town to play Trinity a month ago, but didn't see this thread. But their whole OL was slow I thought, and was schooled by the smaller, faster Trinity team, who won big.

                        Amid dozens and dozens of scholarship offers, ESPN has posted that Matt James has three favorites as of right now Ohio State, Cincinnati, and Notre dame. This is definitely a kid who is high on us.

                          It would be nice to get him away from tosu and the backyard of the Bearcats.

                                    OOPS! My bad. Thanks for the clarification. I'll fix it above...

                                      Alright, I was right originally, but I got my players mixed up. But I knew he was offered, as it was fixed already in the title of the thread.

                                      Cincinnati (Ohio) St. Xavier offensive lineman Matt James already had a very impressive scholarship offer list that included Ohio State, Florida, Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Alabama, Cincinnati, Illinois and Stanford. The list has become even more impressive in the past week.

                                      The 6-foot-8 and 280-pound James has added scholarship offers from LSU, Penn State, Florida State and Miami.

                                        Matt was at the open practice today. Nice news to hear from a very good recruit. He'll be tough to pull from OSU but getting him to SB is huge...

                                            Hopefully that's a good sign. I would like to land him as well as Hurst, Henderson, Linder, and well, that would give us another OL to play with.

                                                Matt James visited open practice and had nothing but great things to say about the experience. I'm really like our chances with him.

                                                disclaimer: I know every recruit only has positive comments after visiting any school, but, his comments seemed uniquely positive.

                                                        Kyle Rudolph went to the same school right? Are they friends? Will this effect his decision? I'm getting interested to see how this plays out.

                                                          Same city, but Rudolph went to Elder. James goes to St. X.

                                                            You can bet Rudolph will def be in his ear especially with our lack of depth at the Tackle positions..

                                                              OSU boards reporting that Matt has eliminated OSU or that the OSU staff has backed off, not sure which came first... probably the former. In any case, look for a commitment to ND soon.

                                                              On a side note, it seems like Hurst has eliminated ND. Would be a fair trade if we got Hurst instead.

I like QBs convincing O-linemen to come protect them for four years.
