LeBron James’ Son Announces College Basketball Commitment

Bronny James will be staying in the west coast

Bronny James announced his college basketball commitment Saturday.

The son of Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James will play the 2023-24 season with the USC Trojans, he announced on Instagram.

Bronny James played high school basketball at Sierra Canyon in Chatsworth, Calif., and he was named a McDonald’s All-American this season. The 18-year-old was a consensus four-star recruit and was deciding between USC, Ohio State or the G-League Ignite, according to the Los Angeles Times in January.

ESPN ranked James 19th in his class in their final rankings, and he was projected to be a top-10 pick in the 2024 NBA Draft in an early mock draft in February. The Boston Celtics do have their 2024 pick, but if James is a top-10 prospect, it’s unlikely the C’s will get to draft the son of one of their top rivals.

James, like his father, already has caught the ire of Skip Bayless for a big dunk back in August. LeBron James has expressed the desire to one day play on the same team as his son, and that dream is one step closer to a reality.

The Trojans finished last season 22-11 with a 14-6 record in the Pac-12. USC lost in the first round of the 2023 Men’s Basketball Tournament at a 10-seed to seventh seed Michigan State Spartans.
