Bronny James, son of NBA legend LeBron James, is currently at the Nike Hoop Summit in Oregon, showing off his skills as the world awaits the decision about which college he’ll attend.
There are several schools wanting to secure James as a student.
The front-runners, according to reports, are Oregon, Ohio State, and USC.

This vague answer received a big response from fans online, who are all very curious about what’s coming next for James.

“Lebron might not be the best player of all-time, but he did a hell of a job raising this kid, good kid,” one fan said.
