Bronny James to Ann Arbor? Jalen Rose makes recruiting pitch for Juwan Howard's program
Bronny James to Michigan? That is the plan if one former Wolverines star has his way.
Jalen Rose, who starred at Michigan from 1991-1994, recently made his pitch to the son of Lebron James during an NBA Today segment (Via On3 Sports):
“First and foremost Bronny, your parents don’t have to get to know the head coach,” Rose said. “Because they won a championship with him in Miami. And you want to pick a school with a head coach that knows what it’s like to play and perform on that level to get you there.”
“Second, you went to L.A. to make your name. Come back to the Midwest and show your game,” Rose continued. “And here’s the other thing: You can go kick at that big house in Ohio when your parents are on the West Coast. Think about that o the days off. But in all honesty, all of the sudden you to Ann Arbor, it’s a very quaint college town.”
Rose is referring to Michigan head coach Juwan Howard, who won a championship with Lebron James in Miami. Howard was also Rose’s “Fab 5” teammate at Michigan.
Despite the sell, competition for Bronny James is high. Oregon, USC and Ohio State have reportedly shown interest in the King’s son. James, out of Sierra Canyon (CA), is listed as a 4-star shooting guard and the No.43 player in the nation for the class of 2023 according to 247 Sports Composite Rankings.
Time will tell if the younger James will end up at Michigan or the B1G, but the former Michigan standout sure made a hard sell.
