LeBron James Jr. is expected to be one of the top players in the country for his class. The oldest son of the NBA's best player is still a year away from high school, but there's already talk of him possibly joining his father in the league (LeBron has said this would be his greatest accomplishment).

Schools are already starting to recruit LeBron Jr., even though he's still years away from seriously contemplating a college decision. A couple of major programs have reportedly already offered him a scholarship.

Duke, unsurprisingly, is one of the schools being mentioned as an option for LeBron Jr. The Blue Devils hosted LeBron Jr. and his AAU team for an unofficial visit over the weekend.

Video of the visit has been posted:

247Sports' Adam Rowe has more details on the visit, too:

Former Duke guard and current Director of Basketball Operations, Nolan Smith, led the AAU team on a tour of the facilities, although they were greeted first by current Duke freshman Zion Williamson in the hallways of Duke's historic gym. Williamson told Blue Chips' coaches that he was adjusting well to being a Duke college freshman.

LeBron certainly has a good relationship with Duke's head coach. Coach K was LeBron's Olympics coach and the three-time NBA champion has praised him often.
