Four-star prospect Bronny James announced his college commitment and won’t be far away from his famous father and family.

James revealed on Instagram that he is committed to USC.

The 19th prospect, according to ESPN 100 for this year, chose the Trojans over Ohio State and Oregon.

When the Sierra Canyon guard steps onto the Los Angeles campus, he will be the top-rated NIL player in men’s college basketball with a $5.9 million valuation, according to On3. James, who was named a McDonald’s All-American in January, has nearly 13 million followers on Instagram and Twitter.

The son of future Hall of Famer LeBron James has signed several deals, including becoming the first high schooler to sign with Beats By Dre. James will also be one of two male high school players already signed to a Nike NIL deal and will be playing for a school with an agreement with the brand.

Another James son is making his way up the basketball ladder.

Bronny’s younger brother, Bryce, signed a deal with Klutch Sports for NIL representation last December. He just completed his sophomore year at Sierra Canyon.
