It is never easy to follow in the shoes of a legendary father, especially in the same sport, but that is exactly what Bronny James, the oldest son of LeBron James, is trying to do.
According to a previous report from On3 on Wednesday, a number of schools are actively recruiting Bronny, including Oregon, USC, and Ohio State, with the Ducks reportedly being the frontrunners at this point.
Odds have emerged regarding James’s recruitment via BetOnline, and they surprisingly have a school listed as the favorite that was not previously reported.
What college will Bronny James commit to?
North Carolina: 4/1
Michigan State: 15/2
Ohio State: 14/1

These odds have Ohio State, the school that LeBron said he would have gone to if he ended up going to college, as a +1400 long shot to land Bronny.
It definitely makes sense for UCLA to be listed considering LeBron recently agreed to a two-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Lakers that will keep him in Los Angeles through the 2024-25 season.
LeBron has also expressed interest in playing with Bronny once he is eligible to enter the NBA Draft, which is likely why LeBron decided to put a player option in his contract for the 2023-24 offseason.
There is definitely a long way to go in the recruitment of Bronny, but it would be very surprising to see him go too far from Los Angeles. The odds certainly reflect that.
