It's unclear just how big of a recruit LeBron James Jr. is going to be. The son of the NBA's best player has yet to hit high school. It's too early to tell what kind of prospect he is going to turn into.

That's not stopping people from talking about LeBron Jr. and his basketball future, though.

Even his dad, perhaps the greatest basketball player of all-time, has said that his greatest achievement as a player would be to share an NBA court with his son.

LeBron and his son have been going viral on social media over the past couple of days due to some AAU games. LeBron Jr.'s team won a huge game over Chris Paul's AAU team. LeBron was in the stands to watch.

This has all prompted more talk about LeBron Jr. and his future.

Five schools have been named the favorite to land a commitment from the son of King James if he decides to go to college.

Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, North Carolina and UCLA have been named the favorites in the recruitment of LeBron Jr. by one sportsbook.

LeBron Jr.'s AAU team recently took an unofficial visit to Duke, where they were shown around by five-star freshman Zion Williamson.

If Coach K is still leading the Blue Devils' program, they probably are the favorite to land a commitment from LeBron Jr.

LeBron has played for Coach K on Team USA and is a big fan of his coaching abilities and what he's built at Duke. It remains to be seen, though, if LeBron Jr. will be the kind of player who is deserving of a spot with the Blue Devils. We'll have a better idea of what kind of prospect he is in a couple of years.
