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 have already jumped to express interest in recruiting him for college ball.
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. And he’s not too happy about it.

“Yeah, he’s already got some offers from colleges,” he told the radio station. “It’s pretty crazy. It should be a violation. You shouldn’t be recruiting 10-year-old kids.”
But 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
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 the coolest kicks and backpacks at school.
