LeBron James’ youngest son is transferring high schools to further his basketball career. Bryce took to social media to announce on Thursday. He will join Notre Dame High School in Sherman Oaks, California, for the upcoming 2023-24 season.
The 16-year-old had his first practice with the Knights on Wednesday, coach Matt Sargeant said. He is joining the team as a junior guard and playing alongside Mercy Miller, the son of rapper Master P., as well as his friend Angelino Mark, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Bryce is transferring from Sierra Canyon High School, where he played his first two high school seasons with his brother, Bronny James. His older brother recently enrolled at the University of Southern California.
The incoming junior was first slated to transfer to Campbell Hall. He was seen touring the campus, watching workouts and practicing with the Vikings in recent weeks, according to the LA Times. He played with the team at an Arizona tournament last June.
“I wish him all the best,” Campbell Hall coach David Grace said. “He’s a great kid.”
Bryce is a three-star recruit in the class of 2025, according to 247Sports ratings. He is said to have potential but still needs practice.
“He may not be the dynamic athlete or playmaker some expect at first, but he is a fundamentally sound player with solid perimeter size and a good early skill-set,” Director of Scouting Adam Finkelstein wrote in a report, according to CBS. “He possesses clear shooting potential with naturally soft touch, compact release, and the ability to make both threes and pull-ups. His left hand is advanced for his age and he also has a good early understanding of the game. Physically, he has a solid build for an underclassman, but is still just growing into his body a bit and so far from a finished product.”
So far, Bryce has one public scholarship offer from Duquesne University, according to On3.
