In all likelihood James ends up playing offensive tackle at UW, but there is always the chance that he ends up on the defensive side of the ball. He went both ways in high school, and has pretty good athleticism for a guy his size and could end up as a big defensive end if the staff thinks he projects better there.

James really has the look of an offensive lineman for a spread offense. He's got that tall, lean, athletic look, that of a guy who can get across the face of a defender on outside zone plays or put a hat on a hat in space. His pad level is not always ideal, but with proper coaching and some time in the weight room James should be a real player for this program in a few years
