The hype surrounding LeBron James Jr.
continues to mount as the 2019-20 high school basketball season approaches.
What should we realistically expect from "Bronny" next season as a member of California's two-time defending state champions at Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth)
While James has the potential to be an elite prospect in the Class of 2023, don't expect him to play big minutes right away. In fact, the 6-foot-2 guard is unlikely to be a starter for a program loaded with talent and potentially more to come with transfer rumors swirling. Earning any minutes at all as a freshman at Sierra Canyon should be considered a major victory.
Playing a year above his age group in the the Nike EYBL Peach Jam last week, James averaged five points per contest while playing a little over 25 minutes per outing. He connected on 5 of 11 shots from beyond the arc during his team's three contests.
This summer was expected to be
much of the same, as a handful of elite prospects are rumored to be considering the Los Angeles-area private school.
The first, Zaire Williams, announced on Thursday he was transferring to Sierra Canyon from Notre Dame (Sherman Oaks, Calif.). The a 6-foot-8 small forward is the No. 7-ranked prospect in the country
for the Class of 2020 according to 247sports.com and holds offers from college Blue Bloods including North Carolina and UCLA as well as a handful of other Pac-12 schools.
The Trailblazers have been the standard in the Golden State over the past five seasons, combining to go 138-19 with three state championships. They have ended the year ranked No. 18 nationally or better in each of the past three seasons – including No. 6 in 2018-19.
