Bronny James is beginning to get recruited by some major schools.
While Bronny isn’t a top 10 recruit right now, he’s made some significant strides this year in his game, according to NBA draft expert Paul Biancardi.
The game has slowed down for him, as James is able to compete with intensity, make sound decisions under pressure and produce against high-level competition. Throughout his high school career, he has done an excellent job at navigating the spotlight of being the son of an 18-time NBA All-Star and four-time NBA Finals MVP. He has concentrated on improving himself instead of trying to prove himself.
This week, James, the No. 39 prospect in the 2023 ESPN 100, will face international competition, which will not only be an opportunity for him to show what he can do on the court in terms of playing, but also his leadership as a rising senior. It will be important for him to use his voice to lead his team and encourage others in the right moments, especially because players on the team gravitate toward him.
According to Biancardi, Bronny is being recruited by UCLA, USC, and Michigan, among other teams.
Although it’s still relatively early in the recruiting process, there is a strong feeling he will take the college route as opposed to the G League Ignite or other developmental leagues. He is being pursued by the likes of UCLA, USC, Michigan, Ohio State and Oregon, among others.
