Blaine Taylor on Darius James: "Darius was a youngster, who we looked at and said he's a winner. He really wants to be here, he's a worker, and we think he can make a difference in the long haul. If you look at the way Darius has carried himself as a student, as a representative of our program and as someone who has worked hard to get to the winners circle, hopefully the next steps will be just as much fun, enriching and rewarding for him."
