LeBron James isn't the only member of his family who will be playing basketball in the Los Angeles are next year. LeBron James Jr., a rising eighth grader, will be taking his talents to Southern California, too.

LeBron Jr., who goes by Bronny, has made a commitment for his basketball future, too. He'll be playing his high school basketball at a prestigious Los Angeles-area school.

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor has confirmed that LeBron's oldest son has committed to playing for Sierra Canyon.

"Multiple sources across the industry have confirmed that James’s son, Bronny, has committed to play basketball at private-school powerhouse Sierra Canyon, which was first mentioned by Gary Payton in an interview with Black Sports Online," he reports.

Sierra Canyon is one of the most-prestigious high schools in the state of California, with an extremely impressive list of students and alumni.

LeBron Jr. will be joining some top-level basketball prospects at Sierra Canyon, too. The boys' team ranked among the top 25 nationally in 2017-18.

The school's roster includes the sons of Scottie Pippen and Kenyon Martin and also boasts a five-star recruit in Cassius Stanley.

LeBron Jr. is still a year away from playing high school ball, but the school will surely still be among the country's elite by the time he gets there.

James himself has said his goal is to play in the NBA with his son one day. We're still several years away from the being a possibility, so for now, we'll have to settle for them both playing ball in the City of Angels.
