Let the Bronny James recruitment race begin.
Bronny, son of LeBron, was bumped up to the No. 35-ranked player in the prep class of 2023 () following a strong final AAU circuit this past summer, but his recruiting process had been hush-hush until recently.
In August,about his desire to play college basketball, with USC, UCLA, Michigan, Ohio State and Oregon being linked to him. His father was quick to shut down the rumors, taking to Twitter to dismiss the noise around the 17-year-old high school senior.
He hasn’t taken 1 visit yet and has only had a few calls with coaches and universities. When Bronny makes his choice you’ll hear it from him.👑

A few days later, Bronny left the Buckeye faithful with something to get excited about, posting on Instagram in an Ohio State uniform with the caption “buckeye nation? #notcommited.”
The younger James’ recruitment process will be well-documented. This is just the beginning for the son of arguably the greatest player of all time.
