Bronny James, son of NBA superstar LeBron James, announces commitment to USC
Bronny James will play his college ball for USC.
The 2023 combo guard from Los Angeles (Calif.) Sierra Canyon announced his commitment to coach Andy Enfield and the Trojans on his Instagram page on Saturday. Enfield gets a complement to No. 1 overall recruit Isaiah Collier, who has already signed with the program.
James is the son of LeBron James, a four-time NBA champion and the league’s all-time scoring leader. Given the high-profile nature of the family, Bronny’s recruitment has been kept mostly close to the vest. The Trojans were believed to be going up against Ohio State and Oregon for James’ signature.

Bronny stands 6-foot-3, 190 pounds. He’s a 5-star prospect in the industry-generated 247 Composite and ranked as the No. 21 overall recruit in the class. He’s also the No. 5 combo guard and the No. 4 prospect from the state of California.
This is the second time during Enfield’s tenure the Trojans have added multiple 5-star recruits in the same class, with the 2019 class being the other. Assuming Bronny signs with the program, he’ll be the sixth 5-star recruit in the last five years to sign with the Trojans.
Bronny averaged 13.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.8 steals during his senior season for Sierra Canyon — a program that won the Mission League title in three of his four years on the team.
He had 15 points to go with four assists in the McDonald’s All-American Game, knocking down five of his eight shots from 3-point range. Bronny was also selected to play on Team USA at the Nike Hoop Summit, where he posted 11 points and four rebounds to help Team USA to a 90-84 win over Team World.
