There's a realistic chance that Bronny James could be committing to a college program in the future.

For a while, it looked like the NBA G League was going to be the top option for him (it still could be), but that hasn't stopped programs from recruiting him.

Per Jamie Shaw of On3, Michigan, Oregon, and USC are actively pushing to land LeBron James' son. 

Shaw also writes that Michigan head coach Juwan Howard has a connection to the family since he played with LeBron for three seasons. USC is near where James plays (Sierra Canyon School) while Oregon has a connection since his dad has a lifetime deal with Nike. 

James is currently the No. 12 player in his home state (California) and the No. 7 shooting guard in the 2023 class, per 247sports composite rankings

He's also the No. 43 player in the country, regardless of position. 

We'll see if he'll decide to pick a school before signing day.
