Bronny James, the eldest son of NBA icon, Lebron James, (the “prince” if you will), was named to the McDonald’s All-American games West roster on Tuesday. He currently attends and plays for Sierra Canyon High School in Chatsworth, California, and was one of 24 boys that will be taking part in the festivities. The East and West squads will do battle on March 28 in Houston.
The recruitment of Bronny has been a bit of an unusual one. There’s not a whole lot going on when you look at social media, and he and his father have been pretty tight-lipped about where things stand as the class of 2023’s No. 23 overall gets closer to closing out his high school career. But a report from the Los Angeles Times surfaced last week that Ohio State was in his top three schools that also included USC and Oregon.
Bronny and LeBron have been on the sidelines of Ohio State games, and we’ve seen him pictured in an OSU uniform visiting with Chris Holtmann and staff when Notre Dame came to the ‘Shoe last football season. But aside from that and knowing that LeBron is a huge Buckeye fan and would have likely gone there if he weren’t allowed to go straight to the NBA, where Bronny ends up going is still very open it would appear.

Despite being the son of an NBA legend and sure-fire Hall of Famer, Bronny started out a little slow in recruiting circles but has begun to really show development and has quickly risen up many recruiting services’ rankings as he gets ready to head off to college.
Buckeye fans can cross their fingers that the pride of roots in Ohio and his father’s fandom can help land the 6-foot, 3-inch, 190-pound point guard.
