The Ohio State men's basketball team is still pursuing a member of LeBron James' family.
After having recruited Bronny James, a top-30 prospect in the class of 2023 who ultimately signed with USC last spring, the Buckeyes will host his younger brother, Bryce James, on an unofficial visit this weekend, The Dispatch has confirmed.
A 6-4, 180-pound shooting guard in the class of 2025, Bryce James will play this season at Sherman Oaks (California) Notre Dame. He transferred there from Chatsworth Sierra Canyon, where he had played last season alongside his older brother. Bryce James is a three-star prospect in the 247Sports rankings and is rated as the No. 13 player in his state, the No. 20 shooting guard in the country and the overall No. 129 national recruit in the 247Sports.com composite rankings. ESPN lists him as a four-star prospect.
While at USC, Bronny James suffered cardiac arrest in late July and, although coach Andy Enfield has said he is doing well, his basketball future is uncertain. He was not in uniform when the Trojans opened practice last week.
Bronny James, alongside his father, took an unofficial visit to Ohio State last fall for the Notre Dame football game. Together, they spent time on the Ohio Stadium sideline pregame before watching the game from a suite. They also watched the men's basketball team practice and took part in a photoshoot, with James' parents decked out in Ohio State gear.
It's not clear which schools have offered Bryce James a scholarship other than Duquesne or what other visits he has taken or plans to take.
