Cali RB a hot commodity

With so many quality west coast running backs in the class of 2010, some might get overlooked. Jordon James won't be one of them. The Corona running back has a number of offers, with other schools certain to follow suit. The Oregon Ducks have him on their radar.

Jordon James had over 1000 yards rushing as a junior while playing in less than half of the games.

"I only played 4.5 games this season. I broke my arm. I already had 1135 yards rushing, and 10 rushing touchdowns, and one receiving. I had an 8.7 yards per carry average. Our team got down when I got hurt. It was really tough being on the sidelines through the season."

The injury that ended his junior season is behind him. From a recruiting standpoint, his injury should have no effect. Since that time he has resumed team sports.

"My arm is now fully healed, and I will be lifting a lot weights and running track instead of playing baseball. I run the 100, 200, and 4x100. I have run a 10.8, 100, and a 22.0, 200. My long jump max was 22 feet."
