Player Of The Week: James Demery

Oakwood School sophomore guard James Demery is considered one of the best shooting guards in the nation and now he's a WITN Player Of The Week.

Demery is averaging just over 20 points per game but more importantly he's attracting the attention of a number of major Division One colleges. Demery is getting recruited by Kansas, East Carolina, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech and Southern California just to name a few. He is getting so much attention at the small school just outside Greenville that other players are transferring into Oakwood just to play on his team.

Sports director Billy Weaver has more on this "Super Sophomore."

    Not the best night to ask, but James I think the Wolfpack is the best pick. I vote the NCSU wolfpack. Not the best night to say that. Good luck, you will probably have your pick of colleges. Consider your major, that should decide your choice.

    Fantastic young man. Great to see good things happen to good people. He is a role model that I wish more young kids would follow.

    James Demery you are a very humble and respectable young man. You have a natural gift that God blessed you with. I'm proud of you, I love you and I couldn't ask for a better son. Just like you were a blessing to me, you will be a blessing to others. For every one that helped guide Jaybird in the right path I thank you so much. Representing Williamston and Greenville Always.........Mom
