Four-star guard Nigel James is looking to take an official visit to Rutgers basketball this fall. The Big Ten program are one of four teams that James has scheduled an official visit with so far.
James, a 6-foot, 170-pound guard for Long Island Lutheran, is one of the top prospects in the northeast.
Offered by Rutgers in late June, James has also been offered by Marquette, UMass, St. Joseph’s (Philadelphia), Providence, St. John’s, George Mason, Iowa, Syracuse, Oklahoma State and Virginia Tech among others.
James will be taking an early October official visit to Rutgers basketball.

James re-tweeted the report.
Confident in his handle, James is a silky smooth ball handler and distributor. He has great range to his offensive game and is strong defensively.
The class of 2024 prospect is already very nuanced in his game. He is a four-star recruit according to ESPN.com.
