Oregon, Ohio State, Michigan among potential suitors

Bronny James, the son of LeBron James, is making a name for himself in the basketball world.

Alongside his younger brother, Bryce James, Bronny will represent California Basketball Club on a multi-game tour of Europe, which includes matches against teams from London, Paris and Rome.

While playing against top international competition, Bronny has the chance to show what he can bring to teams at the top level. A rising senior in Sierra Canyon near Los Angeles, Bronny remains uninterested in plans after graduating from high school.

Bronny ranks 43rd among overall rookies in his class, by 247Sports. But it is attracting the attention of several notable high profile programs, according to Paul Biancardi (by ESPN):

“While still relatively early in the recruiting process, there is a strong feeling that he will take the college route rather than the G League Ignite or other development leagues. ‘UCLA, USC, Michigan, Ohio State and Oregon, among others.

The most notable finding from this report is that Bronny is more likely to go the NCAA route than play for the G League Ignite or Overtime Elite. But there is also more to be found interesting in the news.

UCLA and USC make sense as potential destinations for Bronny given his dad plays nearby for the Los Angeles Lakers.

But the other destinations are certainly remarkable and interesting as well. Ohio State is not shocking considering his father’s college affiliation. If he signed with the Buckeyes, he would be the fifth four star rookie in their class.

Oregon shouldn’t surprise anyone either given LeBron’s connection to Nike. This would be a particularly fascinating landing spot for Bronny, as they already have two of the top 10 rookies in the classroom with Mookie Cook and Kwame Evans.

Cook, who recently recommitted to Oregonshould play the role of LeBron in an upcoming biopic on the four-time NBA MVP.
