Bryce James, the son of NBA legend LeBron James, received a scholarship to play basketball at Ohio State University, which is the same university LeBron said he would have attended if he had chosen the route to go to college.


According to People, the younger James received the offer amid his unofficial visit to the campus on Oct. 7.


“Blessed to receive an offer from Ohio State #GoBuckeyes,” he wrote on his Twitter/X account on the same day of his visit.


His older brother, Bronny James, also visited Ohio State, but he chose to attend the University of Southern California.


Bronny, according to ESPN, is a 6-6 junior shooting guard at Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, CA. He has also gotten an offer from Duquesne University, though he has not visited the university.


His prospects of projecting as an NBA player are high, especially given his skill level, according to NBA Draft Room.


“A very skilled outside shooter with a soft touch and near perfect form, Bryce is a big wing with a high skill level and a quickly improving game,” the report said. “He’s shown the ability to score from three levels and has a much improved dribble drive game with better bounce and explosiveness.”


Additionally, Bryce posted pictures of himself on Instagram wearing an Ohio State basketball jersey. One picture included his mother, Savannah James. His photo set was captioned, saying “Buckeye Nation, how we feeling?”


Many users responded with gleefulness, including his big bro, Bronny, saying, “COMPYYYYYY.”


The magnitude would be cataclysmic if Bryce attends Ohio State, as the potential NIL deals would be through the roof. In 2022, Bryce signed an NIL deal with Klutch Sports, which is an agency founded by his father’s longtime friend and business partner, Rich Paul.


On3, a site that tracks NIL deals, estimated Bryce’s NIL value at a whopping $1.2 million before the Ohio State offer, making Bryce the most profitable high school basketball player in the United States. Imagine the deals he would get at Ohio State.
