ESPN 300 RB makes surprise pick 

January, 27, 2013
Texas State picked up a gift in the form of an ESPN 300 prospect late Sunday morning.

Four-star running back Jamel James (Katy, Texas/Cinco Ranch) gave the Bobcats his verbal pledge following an official visit to the San Marcos, Texas, campus. Cinco Ranch coach Don Clayton confirmed the news via text Sunday afternoon.

James became not only the program’s 18th overall commitment but also the program’s top-ranked commit of the 2013 recruiting class.
