James, a former four-star recruit from Ridge Community High in Polk County, had a solid career at Miami. He ran for 46 yards and a touchdown while playing a very limited role as a freshman in 2009. He ran for 398 yards and four touchdowns as a sophomore in 2010. He ran for 275 yards and seven touchdowns while battling injuries in 2011, the year he played behind Lamar Miller. His best season came as a senior in 2012 when he ran for 642 yards and six scores. He also added 344 yards and three scores as a pass-catcher in Jedd Fisch's offense. James started every game in 2012 and was named the team's MVP after the season.
McGee, a former four-star recruit from Plantation High in South Florida, was a two-year starter for the Hurricanes at cornerback. After playing in 20 games, and starting one, over his first two seasons here, McGee became a starter before the 2011 season. He finished his junior season with 38 tackles, three pass break-ups, and one interception. He turned in his best season as a senior in 2012 when he finished with 54 tackles, seven pass break-ups, and two interceptions.
McGee is projected to be a mid-round pick in April's draft, while James is likely going to be a late-round selection.
