‘PS Congrats to all the other boys and girls who were also named in the 2023 Class Micky D’s games! It’s an honor.’

Bronny isn’t the only big-name high school prospect named in the game as Kentucky recruits Justin Edwards, DJ Wagner (son of ex-NBAer and former LeBron teammate Dajuan Wagner), Aaron Bradshaw, and Reed Sheppard, USC commit Isaiah Collier and Texas Longhorn commit Ron Holland are also making the 24-man roster.

Bronny has yet to make a college decision, but his final three choices are believed to be between USC, Oregon, and his father’s beloved Ohio State.

Bronny and LeBron were previously seen attending the Ohio States opening football game against Notre Dame during his official visit to the school. The younger James followed it up by posting photos of himself in an Ohio State uniform.

If Bronny puts up a game performance anywhere close to what his father did when LeBron scored 27 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out seven assists 20 years ago, whichever school he chooses will be more excited to have him on the roster though. if only for one season.

ESPN draft expert Jonathan Givony recently reported that Bronny is considered a possible first round pick in the 2024 NBA draft.
