LeBron James Jr., age 10, is already receiving offers from colleges

LeBron James says that his 10-year-old son has already garnered some interest from colleges in the form of recruitment letters and scholarship offers.

​LeBron James says that his 10-year-old son has already garnered some interest from colleges in the form of scholarship offers, but didn't reveal the names of the schools.

Video of LeBron James Jr. playing basketball with his AAU team hit the internet earlier this year and quickly garnered a lot of attention, as the younger James seemed to be following in his father's footsteps.

While James has said he is proud of the his son's basketball abilities, he is surprised schools are allowed to contact players at such a young age, according to CBS Detroit.

"[I]t’s pretty crazy. It should be a violation, you shouldn’t be recruiting 10-year-old kids.”

James did go on to say his son's style of play reminded him of himself at that age, which is only going to lead to more letters showing up at the James residence for LeBron Jr.
