Jiwan James is a 2007 OF/P with a 6'4'', 170 lb. frame from Willistan FL, who attends Williston HS. He has a long and lean build with wiry strength and easy, balanced actions. James is a three-sport athlete with Division I talent in both football and basketball as well as baseball and he does things so easily and smoothly that it looks almost casual. James is one of the top defensive outfielders we've seen at this level. He's a 6.68 runner with long, easy strides that eat up ground. His combination of arm strength, accuracy and release is unsurpassed at this level and he might end up throwing 100 from the outfield when he gets stronger and is a full-time baseball player. Offensively, James is a switch-hitter with raw hitting skills but good bat speed and very good hands. He's better from the left side now, where he hits from a spread stance and can drive the ball to all fields. Overall, James is a high ceiling athlete who loves baseball and who is one of the best makeup kids in the 2007 class. He's signed to go to Florida but will get high level draft interest before then.
