Bronny James Has Reportedly Received An Offer From The University Of Memphis

As the son of a basketball legend, Bronny James will have his pick of the litter when it comes time to choose his college experience -- and it looks like he'll have the option to pick one more.

Today, reports indicate that the University of Memphis has joined the long list of teams making a push for Bronny. According to On3, they have officially made an offer to the young superstar.

Chatsworth (Calif.) Sierra Canyon four-star combo guard Bronny James, the son of LeBron James, has received an offer from Memphis, a source told On3.

On Thursday, On3’s Jamie Shaw reported that the Tigers were actively recruiting James.

The majority of Bronny’s recruitment largely remains a mystery. However, On3 has discovered USC has also offered James a scholarship. North Carolina A&T and North Carolina Central both offered Bronny back in early 2020.

The Memphis Tigers have a pretty notorious basketball program, and Bronny could benefit greatly from accepting the offer to play there.

But, according to the latest reports, the Oregon Ducks currently have the best odds of landing the young star.

After a collection of calls, texts and conversations with sources, I have submitted an expert pick and feel like we are at a pace to publish a ranking of the contenders article.

Dana Altman has been on quite the roll on the recruiting trail recently. The Ducks picked up a pair of five-star recruits in the last month: Mookie Cook and Kwame Evans. They also landed an early commitment from four-star Jackson Shelstad.

There are many ties between the James family and Oregon. The connections mostly center around Nike. Oregon is the flagship school for the Nike brand. LeBron James and Nike have done business together with SpringHill Company. And LeBron has signed a lifetime contract with Nike as an apparel brand.

Of course, fans should take all this speculation with a grain of salt. LeBron has already come out and said that his son has made no formal decision yet, which means he could end up going anywhere.

Still, it's exciting to think about a young James athlete out there in the college scene. Whichever school is lucky enough to get him will get to enjoy everything he brings to the table.
