It’s been building for a while, but now the whole Brony James thing is heating up.
Anyone who visits this site or any basketball site knows who LeBron James is. In case you didn’t know, the kid is a high school guard who is generally viewed as a 4-star prospect.
He has been the subject of speculation for a few years now and as the recruiting process begins to take shape, a few schools are starting to come around. It’s basically Southern Cal, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Rutgers and Memphis.
And Duke and UNC?
Duke had a long association with Broney through former coach Mike Krzyzewski’s relationship with his father, when they coached him in the Olympics, but apparently Coach K’s retirement is a different dynamic.
It is still early and so far only NCCU has officially presented it. According to LeBron, the kid hasn’t taken a tour or really talked to many coaches yet. But in classic modern sports, David Thompson of the Fayetteville Observer reports that the race is already handicapped. For what it’s worth, Duke is behind Oregon, UNC and UCLA, but ahead of Kentucky, Kansas and Ohio State.
