LeBron James’ children were destined to have some great athletic genes. Both Bronny and Bryce have been getting plenty of looks from interested college and pro scouts. Bronny, who is 17, has generally been thought to be the more promising of the two.
Although Bronny is older and competes at a higher level, some have begun to speculate that Bryce might be the more complete player. ESPN’s Brian Windhorst talked to Dan Patrick about both of LeBron James’ sons. Windhorst has been hearing that Bryce has more upside to his game.
“There are people who told me that Bryce actually might be the better prospect amongst the two. Bryce, I think, is 13 or something like that. I don’t know if we can go that far.”
Bronny has received one NCAA Division 1 scholarship offer thus far. Elite players are usually inundated with interest and offers by the end of their sophomore years. The University of Kentucky is the only school to offer Bronny so far.
Major recruiting sites like 247 Sports don’t have a listing yet for Bryce James. Bronny is said to have “cool” interest from several top schools. Despite the hype, he projects as a mid-level collegiate prospect with outside hopes for the NBA.
Bryce James will have to keep grinding to see if he can garner more interest than his big brother. If LeBron James wasn’t their father, the pair would likely be completely unknown. They’ve got all the advantages in the world. It is now up to Bronny and Bryce to prove they can take their games to the next level.
