It is starting to look as if Bronny James will choose college over the pro ball for at least the 2023-24 season.
Paul Biancardi of ESPN reported there is a “strong feeling” James will attend college, with UCLA, USC, Michigan, Ohio State and Oregon among the schools that are heavily recruiting him. The 6’3″ shooting guard is showing a high basketball IQ, flashing elite passing skills and demonstrating a good feel for the game.
Biancardi noted he’s able to keep his head in the game even when his shot isn’t falling.
247Sports lists James as a 4-star recruit and the No. 43 overall player in the nation. It’s worth noting there are no official offers listed on James’ 247Sports page.
There had been widespread speculation that Bronny James would bypass college and take the professional route. The NBA does not allow players to enter the draft until they are one year removed from high school so rumors suggested he would join the G League Ignite in hopes of improving his draft stock.
Whatever decision is to be made, it will certainly break the internet.
