Bronny James finished off his high school career at Sierra Canyon with quite the resume behind him. He was named a McDonald's All-American, suited up with a number of stars that went on to the NBA and proved to be one of the most well-rounded guards in his graduating class of 2023.

When he first chose to attend USC for his freshman season, it seemed like the perfect choice. James had already proven to be able to co-exist next to other elite guards, would be able to stay close to home and he would also be given the opportunity to play for a historic program.

However, his basketball future remains up in the air as his family continues to try and figure out the details behind his cardiac arrest and if he'll be able to healthily get back on the basketball court. There are definitely a number of directions in which he could go on and it's best that his camp gets as many opinions as possible.

CBS Sports' Cameron Salerno broke down how USC is set to move to the Big Ten Conference next year and he wonders if Bronny may elect to sit out his freshman season and return next year instead.

"USC is going to be one of the programs under a microscope in 2023 because of two reasons: they have the No. 2 overall player from the 2023 recruiting class (Isaiah Collier) and Bronny James elected to stay close to his father in Los Angeles and play at USC. Bronny's status heading into the season is far more complex because of the scary incident that occurred last month that saw him hospitalized after going into cardiac arrest and collapsing during a basketball practice with the Trojans. A wild card that could cement USC as one of the must-watch programs in the Big Ten is if the younger James elects to stay another season to improve his draft stock. USC coach Andy Enfield has proved he can recruit and will have to continue to do so at a high level to keep up with the elite programs in the conference."

We certainly hope that Bronny can resume a normal lifestyle above all else before basketball even is brought up so we'll keep you guys posted as we know more.
