Twitter Reaction: Basketball world reacts to Bronny James choosing USC over Oregon, Ohio State
On Saturday afternoon, arguably one of the most high-profile recruitments in the history of college basketball finally came to an end.
Bronny James, a 4-star guard and the son of NBA legend LeBron James, announced that he will committing to the USC Trojans, choosing Andy Enfield and sunny Los Angeles over the Oregon Ducks and the Ohio State Buckeyes.
Of course, as the son of LeBron, Bronny has drawn a ton of attention of the years down at Sierra Canyon in Los Angeles. He reportedly has already signed a deal with Nike, which gave many some confidence that would potentially commit to the Ducks. However, it was the proximity of USC and everything else that Los Angeles offers that kept Bronny home.
As you would expect, his commitment raised a lot of reaction on social media. Here are some of the best tweets from the afternoon.

How Close Were the Ducks?
I wonder how close Oregon actually got. Seems like it has been USC for a while now. https://t.co/CFW4Dg0soZ

A Real Blown Opportunity

A failure of a season. A failure to land generation talent Bronny James. With the program Wayne Tinkle & Oregon State are building just up Hwy 99, now may be the time for Oregon to move on from Dana Altman if the Ducks want to stay relevant.
