Bronny James Signs Letter Of Intent

After months of speculation, Bronny James finally revealed the next step of his basketball journey earlier in May. James opted to play at least one year of college, as opposed to playing overseas or spending a year in the G-League. Furthermore, James announced that he would be joining Andy Enfield's team at USC. Additionally, Bronny is projected to be a top-ten pick in the 2024 draft. LeBron has expressed a desire to play with his son before he eventually retires.

Last season, the Trojans went 22-11, finishing third in the Pac-12. However, they crashed out of the Pac-12 tournament in the first round 77-72 to Arizona State. Their performance earned them a ten-seed in the NCAA Tournament. That set up a first-round matchup against Michigan State. That ended in a 72-62 loss, meaning that the team had lost in the first round in back-to-back seasons.

LeBron Shares Letter Of Intent News

"My boy signed his letter of intent yesterday for @uschoops! So damn happy and proud of you @bronny!! Pops shed a gangsta 🥺😢 seeing this. So AMAZING!! #ProudDad #BronnyGoingToCollege😱 #JamesGang👑 #FightOn✌🏾" Bronny's father, LeBron James, said on Instagram. His post also included pictures of Bronny at a signing table, as well as a picture with his mother Savannah, and brother Bryce. However, LeBron himself was unable to attend. He is currently in Denver as part of his Western Conference Finals series against the Nuggets.

Despite USC's recent struggles, 2023-24 should be an up year for the program. Alongside Bronny (ESPN's #19 prospect this year), USC is also welcoming another, arguably more elite, prospect. USC also managed to snag the #1 prospect in the class, Isiah Collier. The pair of prospects, along with a young and promising core, could improve the Trojans' prospects. ESPN currently has USC projected as a #5 seed in the 2024 NCAA Tournament. If that proves true, it would the team's highest seeding since 2007. Are you excited to see Bronny at USC? Where do you think he will play in the NBA? Let us know in the comments below.
