LeBron James is a generational talent, so naturally a couple of college basketball programs are already recruiting his son.
Kentucky and Duke have both offered LeBron James Jr., a scholarship, according to a report from CBSSports.com’s Ananth Pandian. The 11-year-old son of the now three-time NBA champion is already dominating on the hardwood. His father skipped college altogether to go to the NBA, a decision that has clearly panned out. It appears the Wildcats and Blue Devils don’t want to let James’ son slip away either.
The elder James added another monumental moment to his already iconic legacy by leading his Cleveland Cavaliers back from a 3-1 deficit and defeating the formerly invincible Golden State Warriors in the NBA finals. James was unanimously voted as the finals MVP and brought the city of Cleveland its first professional championship in 52 years.
It’s unrealistic to think James Jr., will be a prototype of his father. But his already impressive talent combined with his father’s legacy will only make him a highly-touted recruit as he grows up.
