James’ recruitment has been kept under wraps, but a few teams have emerged as potential landing sites for the 6-foot-2 guard: Ohio State, Oregon, USC and Michigan. James is currently the highest rated point guard undecided in the high school class of 2023. He will likely wait until after his high school season for more college visits and is expected to make a late decision.

Possible touchdown points for Bronie James

James made an official visit to Ohio State in early September, which is his only known visit to the campus. He’s never officially commented on what schools are recruiting for, but with LeBron James’ long-running relationship with Nike and Bronie James Signing a lucrative deal for Nike shoes for an undisclosed amount in OctoberHis potential college path would be with the Nike program.

Oregon the The Nike School headquartered two hours away and founder Phil Knight is the most famous alumnus, offering the latest Nike gear to all student athletes. Now, Oregon coach Dana Altman has commitments from Four star Mookie Cook Suite (who is already playing LeBron James in an upcoming movie), Jackson Schelstadt’s bodyguard KJ Evans five star rating.

“[Bronny] He told me he loves Oregon, and I want him to visit there,” Evans told Yahoo Sports. We’re all bits and pieces and don’t hold the ball for long, so it’ll do him good. Bronny can be more of a playmaker and shot-creator, and I think we’ll play well together.”

USC, local to where LeBron James plays at Los Angeles LakersHe already has the commitment of one of the best guards in the first line. Isaiah Collier, but he could still add Bronny James to his upcoming recruiting class. Prior to his junior year at Sierra Canyon, James played a lot of ball as a dual guard alongside current UCLA guard Amari Bailey. Collier and James know each other from playing against each other in Nike’s EYBL the last two summers, and the Trojans will lose guards Boogie Ellis and Drew Peterson after this season.

Michigan, a Jordan brand school under the Nike umbrella, is another possible option. Coach Joanne Howard found early success in his four seasons as head coach of Michigan. James could learn from Howard’s endless knowledge as a former pro with a long career in the NBA. Michigan’s offensive system also gives its guards a great deal of freedom, and James excels as the primary ballplayer, making the correct reading from the catch and roll game. Howard was also on the staff as an assistant coach for Miami Heat When LeBron James played there from 2010 to 2014.

programs that are most likely off

Memphis is another team that has had the edge on James. LeBron James has close ties to head coach Penny Hardaway. The Tigers now have commitments from four-star guards Mickey Williams And Tylor Johnson So are the wings Ashton Hardaway And JJ Taylorwhich makes it unlikely that James will join the 2023 recruiting class.

G League Ignite is also an option if James wants to go down the professional route. It’s no secret that LeBron James plans to play a season in the NBA with his son.

“I want to be down to earth with my son. It would be perfect, for sure, to be with him, spend a whole year with him in the same uniform, and that would be icing on the cake,” LeBron James told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.

Players who choose the G League route over college have a year playing the NBA rules and are ahead of other players in their preseason classes. Ignite successfully drafted youth players with former Ignite players Galen GreenAnd Jonathan Cuminga And Dyson Daniels It’s all in the lottery. Pre-season, caught Pointguard team London Johnson has signed a two-year deal, Which makes it unlikely that James will also sign with Ignite.
