Elite prospect and incoming eighth-grader, LeBron James Jr., who holds reported scholarship offers from Duke and Kentucky, will display and perfect his inherited basketball talents at Crossroads School in Los Angeles.
Notably, California Interscholastic Federation rules prevent Bronny from playing varsity basketball in 2018-19.
Coached in part by his famous father, newly signed Laker superstar LeBron James, Bronny helped lead his AAU team, the North Coast Blue Chips, to a national championship this summer.
Bronny, 13, chose Crossroads over other prospective L.A. basketball powerhouses such as Campbell Hall, Brentwood and Sierra Canyon, according to TMZ Sports.
Former Lakers point guard Gary Payton made headlines in June when he suggested LeBron was L.A.-bound because Bronny had already committed to Sierra Canyon, where the sons of Scottie Pippen and Kenyon Martin were already enrolled. While the Lakers part turned out to be true, Payton got Bronny’s landing spot wrong. Bronny has instead been closer linked to Crossroads over the past few weeks.
Crossroads counts dozens of children of A-list celebrities among its alumni, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Brody Jenner, and Liv Tyler.
Distinguishably, the school has also produced a handful of NBA players, including Baron Davis and Austin Croshere. Most recently, Crossroads graduated Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal’s eldest son, Shareef, who will be a freshman on UCLA’s basketball team this fall.
Shareef O’Neal led Crossroads to the Division II state championship this past season, the school’s first since Davis won a Division I state title and captured “national player of the year” honors in 1997.
