LA Lakers star LeBron James made a significant announcement about his son Bronny James on Twitter, who is almost on the verge of completing his high school basketball.
Bronny is a student at Sierra Canyon High School in Chatsworth, California, where he plays basketball. The Sierra Canyon Trailblazers’ player recently defeated Bishop Montogomery 64-47 and reached the Division I finals.
James asserted that his son is far better than some present players in the NBA while he was watching NBA League Pass. He tweeted: “Man Bronny definitely better than some of these cats I've been watching on league pass today. Shit lightweight hilarious.”
Just after LeBron's exuberant tweet about his son where he asserted him to be much better than other players; Bronny James, has been upgraded to a five-star recruit.
Bronny James, who had been considered the four-star talent so far suddenly saw a sharp increase in his rank following On3's upgrade. He has moved up 18 spots in On3's class of 2023 prospect rankings, to No. 9, from his prior position of No. 27.
Despite the fact that he is still rated as a four-star player by other recruiting websites like ESPN, 247Sports, and Rivals, this substantial improvement places him in the top 10 of On3's class of 2023 prospect rankings.
Bronny's substantial upgrade, according to Jamie Shaw of On3, is the result of his massive improvement. Shaw said: "Even with the brightest of spotlights on him, Bronny continues to grow in his game.”
He continued: “He entered Sierra Canyon as a freshman and arguably as the most famous high schooler in sports. This fame has followed him and even continued to grow. But so has Bronny's game."
After seeing LeBron's Monday tweet, it is clear that he has deep faith on his son's ability to compete at the higher level. Many people have showed their interest in the tweet along with On3 which decided to promote Bronny to a five-star recruit.
