Per Westerville Central’s coach via Steve Blackledge of the Columbus Dispatch, Eric James remains verbally committed to Duquesne even though he decided not sign in the fall. While I don’t know his rationale for withholding his signature, I was told he intends to seal the deal in the spring.
It’s worth noting that you can stay up to date with Eric James throughout his high school season as the Columbus Dispatch provides partial box scores for all of Westerville Central’s games. They only post scoring statistics, but they stay up to date and appear more comprehensive than other paper’s high school team pages.
James has played in four games so far this year. In his first three, he averaged 11.66 points before dropping 30 in his most recent outing. His brother Erron also starts for the 3-1 Warhawks.
