Don’t rule the Oregon Ducks out when it comes to the recruitment of Bronny James.
“He’s going to make his own decision,” James’ father, LeBron, said of the possibility that the high-profile recruit joins the Ducks, per Bill Oram of the Oregonian. “But there’s a chance.”
While Oram pointed out Dana Altman hasn’t yet offered James a scholarship, the Los Angeles Lakers star said the Oregon head coach is a major reason Bronny is interested.
“I think it’s the ability to put pros into the league,” James said. “My son wants to be a pro. It’s the way you hold guys accountable, the way they play. I guess he’s seen the way they play. Dana Altman from the outside looks like a great coach.
“He’s been winning for quite a while here at Oregon, so Bronny’s smart enough to see all that.”
Altman isn’t the only thing working in Oregon’s favor.
