Bronny James participated in this week’s McDonald’s All American Game with a notable distinction.
In addition to being the eldest son of arguably the greatest basketball player of all time, he was also the only partaker who remains uncommitted for the 2023-24 season.
How long will that continue to be the case, though? Not too long.
An obvious frontrunner for Bronny’s services has clearly emerged.
Where will Bronny James bring his talents?
Ohio State +125
The Field +750

Ohio State has quietly become the clear betting favorite to land Bronny. In addition, numerous official college basketball commitment predictor machines also have him landing with the Buckeyes.
Finally, it’s hard to forget his younger Bryce seemingly tipping the family’s hands with that now-infamous Instagram Story he posted last month. Whether that was intentional or accidental remains unclear.
Bronny has offers on the table from nine different college basketball powerhouses, but it has always been pretty clear where his heart was at.
How he will ultimately influence the culture at Ohio State when he is finally there remains to be seen.
Bronny really plays the game of basketball the right way. A focus on defense. A focus on shooting. Selfless play. Mental toughness. These are all the traits that LeBron has instilled in his son.
And it shows.
It doesn’t matter whether he is dismantling his rivals on the court in high-pressure situations or showing how calm he is off it while reporters investigate his love life, Bronny’s mental fortitude is off the charts.
It’s hard being a high schooler and having the Kardashians attend your games. But Bronny handles it as well as anyone possibly could.

With the McDonald’s game out of the way, a final decision on Bronny’s future is coming sooner rather than later.
And while anything can still happen, it seems pretty clear what direction things are trending in.
When will Bronny officially commit to Ohio State, though? Time will tell.
