The 6-foot-3 and 190-pound 4-star recruit, who is rated the No. 11 combo guard in this class according to the 247Sports Composite, is closing in on his college decision.

Luca Evans of the Los Angeles Times reported that, according to a person with knowledge of the situation not authorized to speak publicly, James will make a decision on his college commitment after the season. His top 3 schools are Ohio State — his father’s favorite — USC and Oregon. LeBron James, 38, recently doubled down on previous remarks that he wants to finish his NBA career playing with his son.

One intriguing aspect of James’ recruitment is what kind of player he projects to be, as Evans suggested: Is he a big-time scorer, a leader-to-be with NBA-ready potential at the NCAA Division I level? Or is he a complementary role player, someone who occasionally busts out of the shadows with a highlight?
