Bronny James, the oldest son of LeBron and Savannah James, announced his decision to commit to the University of Southern California (USC) over the weekend.

The 18-year-old basketball player posted on Instagram wearing his Sierra Canyon School uniform in the Trojans' locker room at the Galen Center.

Bronny is currently considered one of the top five point guards in the country, according to ESPN, and he also considered attending Ohio State and Oregon before landing on his USC decision, the Los Angeles Times reported.

ESPN NBA draft analyst Jonathan Givony said that Bronny has first-round potential when he is draft-eligible in 2024.

After the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Playoffs, LeBron, 38, said in a post-game press conference that his son picked "a great university." He continued, "I'm proud of him. This is an incredible thing.

Unless it was one of my great-grandmothers or great-grandfathers or someone way before my time, to my knowledge, this is the first one out of the James Gang to go to college." LeBron added, "It's very, very, very, very exciting, very humbling and a great moment for our family."

Bronny's commitment to USC drew congratulatory messages from various famous friends in the comments section of his Instagram post.

Former professional basketball player Nick Young, who previously played for USC, wrote, "Welcome to the family bro bro ✌🏾✌🏾✌🏾." Natalia Bryant, a current USC student, also commented, "FTFO❣️✌🏽💫" — which stands for "Fight the f--- on," a play on the Trojans' slogan.

Bronny's decision to commit to USC is a significant milestone for the James family, as neither his father nor mother attended college. LeBron said, "Obviously, his dad didn't go to school.

His mom didn't go to college. My mom maybe stepped on campus for a little bit, maybe a community college or something, but she had [me] running around, so she couldn't spend much time in the classroom."

Overall, Bronny's commitment to USC is an exciting and historic moment for the James family, and it represents a bright future for the young basketball player.
