James, who is the son of NBA legend LeBron James, was not expected to play college basketball for a long time. Instead, it was thought that he would go straight to the pros after high school.
Instead, James has become a more serious college prospect over the past year as he has played his way up the recruiting rankings. The Los Angeles Times says that James’ top three schools are Ohio State, USC, and UCLA, but a dark horse candidate could still emerge.
This year, James is only known to have made one unofficial visit. He went to Ohio State’s first football game of the season against Notre Dame.

While there, he watched the basketball team practice, took part in a photo shoot, watched the game with his family from a luxury suite, and spent time with his dad on the sidelines before the game.
If no players leave early, Ohio State should have a full team for the 2023–24 season. But the team’s top scorer right now is a freshman named Brice Sensabaugh.
He has played well enough to be mentioned in mock NBA draughts, and he could follow Malaki Branham as the second one-and-done player in as many years.
His departure would open a spot. So would a transfer, which is likely now that there is a transfer portal and people are eligible to play right away.
