James played college football for the UCLA Bruins from 2003-2005, and then transferred to the UNLV Rebels in 2005 along with Eric Wright and Rocky Hinds from the USC Trojans.
As a senior cornerback James was voted to the Second-team-All Mountain West Conference after leading the nation with 19 pass deflections. He would finish his senior season at UNLV with 45 tackles, three force fumbles and one interception.
In 2021, he received criticism of unsportsmanlike conduct for allowing his team to run up a game to the score of 106-0. The most controversial move came when Coach James went for a two-point conversion when the team was already up 104-0.
He has made a positive impact on his players who continue to exceed academic expectations off the field.
