The Niles (IL) Notre Dame RB tells me he'll visit Michigan State tomorrow.

National Recruiting Analyst
One of my favorite backs in the in the Midwest. Rushed for 2,100 yards and 32 TDs. Film on his profile.
James tells me the Spartans offered. He's currently at practice.

Trieu tweeted hes "very high" on MSU after the visit today
Niles (Ill.) Notre Dame RB Chris James rushed for over 2,000 yards and 32 touchdowns as a junior. He added an offer from the Spartans on Thursday.
Why the 3 star rating then?
I believe Steve's just a writer. I don't think he has much input on the ratings.
laconophilia is everywhere...
I understand that, however, maybe he's got some insight into the mindset of how a guy who rushed for over 2,000 yards gets a 3 star ranking.
As a national recruiting analyst he should have some input.

That would be ideal

He was mentioned in the Detroit News article today. Says he's an athletic freak, weighs in at 212 lbs, and consistently runs a 4.37 or a 4.38 40. If those numbers get out, he won't stay a 3 star for long.
IMO, he and Mo Ways are the two guys we should hammer early before the whole world gets hip to these kids.
@SpartansOrDie: Chris James RT @JShankerESPN: A RB is looking to cut his list next month and #MichiganState is in good position http://t.co/0ozmkPThC9
Offered by Iowa
Wonder what position they will recruit him at to try to hide him from AIRBHG. OT?
Yah, I'm sure the depth chart looks pretty ripe over there right now. I should give credit where it's due. That info came from Tupes.
Spartan running back target Chris James says Michigan State is one of his top two choices and he is looking forward to another visit to MSU.
From Evan Flood's crystal ball article 5 days ago. I asked him why he thought Wisky would lead because it certainly doesn't seem that way. He clearly likes them and they'll be a player but I don't think they jump up to favorite with an offer. If he answers me I'll post the insight.
Wisconsin hasn't offered James yet, but one may not be far off. Assistant Coach Thomas Hammock will drop by James' school in May as the Badgers have remained very interested since the coaching turnover. If Wisconsin does pull the trigger on the there-star running back, they'll likely be the favorite here.
Normally as a RB I would salivate at running behind that OL. But who knows what kind of offense Gary Anderson will run and whether he can keep up that OL factory.
Enoch Smith Jr and Brian Allen have both built a great relationship with RB Chris James.
I did read that too. Was just talking with Rocky about BA carrying the flag. Good point. Evan is just doing his job you know. He writes for them. He's a good writer but I think we're positioned well here.
