Watch List RB James adds Oregon offer
By Derek Tyson
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Watch List running back Tony James (Gainesville, Fla./Gainesville) picked up an offer from the Oregon Ducks on Tuesday afternoon.
The 5-foot-11, 165-pound speedster said he believes he would fit well in the Oregon offensive system.
"That offer means a lot to me, actually," James said. "This is one of those offers that I have kind of been waiting on. It shows my dedication and hard work have been paying off. Oregon is the type of offense where I know I would fit in. They spread the ball out a lot and I feel I could really do well in that offense."
With the Oregon offer on the table, James has decided to reshuffle his top schools. Previously, James had focused his attention on primarily in-state schools.
"My top schools has changed," James said. "In no particular order, they would be Florida, Oregon, Kentucky, Miami and Florida State."
As for his upcoming plans, there are a few schools he would like to get around to see.
"I'll probably visit some schools over spring here," he said. "I'll definitely get to Florida and probably USF and maybe UCF."
