Bronny James, the son of Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, is going to enter his senior year of high school at Sierra Canyon School, a private school in the San Fernando Valley, several weeks from now.

That means it’s time for him to think about what colleges he may want to attend.

One school reportedly interested in him is Ohio State University, which would place him not too far away from where his father honed his skills, not to mention where the elder James started his NBA career.

But there is a dark horse school that also wants the services of the younger James.

Via Lakers Daily:

“Billy Witz and Adam Zagoria of the New York Times looked at why Rutgers’ effort isn’t quite as odd as it seems.

“‘One school making an unexpected push to recruit James is Rutgers, a basketball striver,’ Witz and Zagoria wrote. ‘As far-fetched as it might seem, Rutgers is hoping Coach Steve Pikiell’s strong record of development — turning lightly regarded recruits such as Geo Baker, Ron Harper Jr. and Myles Johnson into decorated Big Ten players — carries some appeal to James.'”

Rutgers is located in New Jersey, which means that the younger James will have to get used to wearing a parka and dealing with snow and frost for a good chunk of the school year.

It isn’t a big-time basketball program, but if he doesn’t get any real offers from schools such as Duke University, the University of North Carolina or the University of California, Los Angeles, he could end up packing for Jersey in about a year.
