One day at a time. One day at a time. In our case it’s 45 days but who is counting, amiright?— EDGE James Wilborn, Jr

#45, James Wilborn, Jr, Freshman, EDGE

Stats

Height: 6’ 4”

Weight: 235 lbs.

High School: Avon Old Farms School, Flint, MI

How’d he get to the Blue™?

A three star (composite) star recruit hailing from ol’ Michigan. Mr. Wilborn had some good offers with Boston College, Rutgers and, you guessed it: Michigan. Dude did good!

Nickname

“J-Dubs”

Listen: I needed an easy one.

Look-a-like

Based solely on the photoshopped picture above: Dwyane Wade?

Career Highlights

He was the no. 43 rated kid at his position per ESPN and 73 for 247Sports. He was a Sports Illustrated All-America candidate.

2021 Prospectus

While his tape is impressive the odds of him seeing a bunch of games this season, barring injury, seems slight. While he looks as though he will be making an impact soon(ish) look for him to take his redshirt year but definitely playing in four games because why not.

Is he on Twitter?

Completely made up fact

In the eternal debate of what is the best Legend of Zelda game, Mr. Wilborn correctly cites Ocarina of Time as the GOAT.
