Lebron James' 10-Year-Old Son Is Already Getting Recruited
Shortly after a video of Lebron James Jr.’s skills went viral, his dad revealed that colleges have already reached out to his son with offers.
At 10 years old, Lebron James Jr. has already shown promise as a successful athlete, and scouts are already expressing interest in recruiting him for college ball.
Seriously, the kid is GOOD. Here he is dominating at John Lucas All-Star Weekend, one of the most competitive youth basketball tournaments in the country.
The video was posted on Feb. 23 and has more than 4.7 million views on YouTube. youtube.com
In an interview with a local radio station in Detroit on Tuesday, Lebron James admitted that his son has recently garnered the attention of some university athletic departments.
“Yeah, he’s already got some offers from colleges,” he said. “It’s pretty crazy. It should be a violation. You shouldn’t be recruiting 10-year-old kids.”
That’s not to say the Cleveland Cavalier forward does not recognize his son’s prowess on the court, and how similarly the two play the game.
“It’s crazy, he plays just like I did. He has great awareness and he’d rather pass first and set guys up. Most kids nowadays just want to score.”
The elder James did not specify which colleges had reached out to his son, or discuss the scholarships they offered.
Guess we’ll have to wait another eight years before finding out where Lebron James Jr. decides to take his talents. In the meantime, he and his younger brother, Bryce, will continue to rock cool kicks and backpacks at school.
Day 1-Back to school for the dynamic duo. Can't find a better 1/2 punch. Bronny·Bryce. Bryce·Bronny! However u wanna put it. Now let's get to them books!
