A college basketball recruiting insider has weighed in on the future of LeBron James' oldest son, LeBron 'Bronny' James Jr., following the soon-to-be high schooler's play at a major AAU tournament this weekend.
Bronny James was coached by his father at this weekend's tournament, the Nike EYBL in Indianapolis.
Of course, videos of LeBron going crazy on the sideline went viral.
LeBron James Jr., who is set to begin high school this fall, was impressive, according to 247Sports' college basketball insider Evan Daniels.
Bronny already has two major scholarship offers from Duke and Kentucky, though more could be coming.
Daniels says it's easy to see James, a 6-foot-2 guard, as a high-major prospect.
With his father looking on, James showed impressive feel for the game and incredible poise for his age. He was unphased by the circus like environment around him. James has a smooth shooting stroke from three, competed on both ends and played with energy. He finished with 11 points and his team left with a double digit victory.
“He’s going to be real special,” Emoni Bates, a top 2022 prospect, said about Bronny after the game. “He plays hard, he’s smart. He finds people. He’s going to be real good.”
The idea of projecting a rising freshman is difficult, and ultimately James’ continued skill development and physical growth will determine where he ends up, but at this stage the 2023 guard is tracking as a future high major prospect
James will almost certainly end up at a Nike school if he ends up playing in college, and if he's as good as people think he'll be, Duke and Kentucky probably are the favorites.
