Jalen James Talks SJSU Commitment

La Lumiere (IN) 2013 point guard Jalen James had a very nice senior season leading his team to a list of quality wins. On Saturday he ended his recruitment and committed to San Jose State.

“It’s an opportunity to build something special. New staff, new team, new start. Coach wants to build around me and it’s a big time conference to do so.”

James discussed what he enjoys about their coaching staff.

“100% real! They both have the same vision of starting over and winning in the Mountain West! Want to build around me and let me run the show. This is a great opportunity for me.”

The La Lumiere senior discussed how he fits into their system.

“Coach Woj wants to play fast, open the court up, and play! He wants to be in control while we do it, but I think it’s the perfect fit!”

James played with the Illinois Wolves during his time on the circuit.
