Redshirt freshman Mike James, a 6-6 swing man, has been cleared to return to action. James tore his achilles tendon last October. At the time, people were saying that he was in contention for a spot in the starting lineup.
The Orlando native averaged 19.4 points, 10.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.2 blocked shots points per game as a senior leading Oak Ridge High School to a 23-3 record and the state 7A semifinals. He was the Orlando Sentinel boys basketball player of the year, and he was also voted Class 7A Player of the Year in Florida.
