You’re going to be hearing a lot more of Brentwood Academy’s Jordan James in the years to come.

The sophomore running back already has offers on the table from schools like Alabama, Tennessee and Vanderbilt (per 24/7 Sports), and posted a monstrous night for the Eagles Friday in the school’s 500th win.

He ran for 201 yards and four touchdowns, and averaged 13 yards a carry in the team’s 40-0 shutout of visiting West Toronto Prep.

The Eagles are once again state contenders, though they’ll have to face stout competition in MBA and McCallie this season to reach their fifth-straight title.

If James keeps this up, it won’t be very hard to get there.

That’s why he’s our City Cafe Player of the Week.
