Dontarius James scored 21 as Huntington Prep beat Hargrave in 3 OT's. Sounds promising.

He has been recruited by Campbell, Coastal Carolina, Presbyterian, Wofford, South Alabama and Butler. Hope he is a sleeper

He is a warm body. Something we have been lacking.
However, Butler and a little school called Kansas also offered. May be a rising star.

Not sure KU offered but did show interest. But CM knows more than most of us.

This may or may not mean anything but watching his highlight video (from last season probably) vs looking at his twitter profile pic (taken like 2 days ago) he looks to be in muuuch better shape now.

He may be a bit of a late bloomer type who was initially overlooked by bigger schools.

Quite an assumption but wouldn't it be nice if it came to fruition.

Chill my fellow beloved Muskie brethren. Anyone being so jaded as to call this recruit a "warm body" needs to have a beer with some of us more seasoned fans. I graduated in 1980. I cheered on folks like Jon Hanley and Bob 'Sky' King. I welcome Mr. James with open arms and will trust that maybe by his Soph year he equates to a 4 star recruit. In either case, he chose us over the dreaded Butler and that already scores major points for me. By the way, have you seen Naji out there on the court so far?? He was not as highly regarded as Scruggs but looks to be a future stud to me. (as I predicted in the off season when I commented on another thread that he would be a starter by early Dec)
Y'all can do what you want as fans, but I would encourage you to wake up and enjoy each day during these lofty Muskie times. This season, knock on wood, should be stellar again with a chance to compete for all the marbles. Enjoy the process. Enjoy each game as Team 96 ebbs & flows, evolves and develops their own identity and chemistry. No need to fret about recruiting as we can chew on that come late April 2018 and beyond....
