Coach: Matt James still committed to Deacons

Despite an over-the-weekend internet report that Raleigh Sanderson WR Matt James had switched his commitment from Wake Forest to Duke, Sanderson coach Tony Lewis said moments ago that that isn’t the case.

“I had dinner with Matt yesterday and obviously talked with him then,” Lewis said. “And he was just in here for weight-lifting. From everything I understand, he’s sticking with his commitment to Wake.

“As far as I know, Duke hasn’t even offered him a scholarship.”

James finished his senior season at Sanderson with 720 receiving yards, 270 rushing yards and 300 more on returns, Lewis said. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound James also scored six touchdowns.
