LeBron James’ son Bronny James and Dennis Rodman’s son DJ Rodman set to play together at USC Trojans

Bronny James, son of NBA superstar LeBron James, and DJ Rodman, son of Basketball Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, are set to team up at the University of Southern California (USC) Trojans for the upcoming college basketball season.

Rodman, a former forward for the Washington State Cougars, will transfer to USC after spending the last four years with the team. In his senior season, he recorded an average of 9.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game while shooting an impressive 38.1 percent from beyond the arc.

Despite being unranked by 247Sports’ composite, Rodman had also received offers from Sacramento State and UC Riverside before committing to Washington State. He will now join a highly-touted 2023 recruiting class at USC that includes 5-star point guard Isaiah Collier, ranked as the No. 1 overall player in the nation by 247Sports’ composite, and 4-star center Arrinten Page.

USC finished second in the Pac-12 last season with a 22-11 overall record and a 14-6 conference record. With the addition of Rodman and other promising recruits, the Trojans are expected to make a strong push in the upcoming season.

Bronny James, who recently committed to USC, is set to begin his freshman year at the university, and the addition of Rodman will only add to the excitement of USC basketball fans. The two players, with their impressive lineages, are poised to make a significant impact on the team and the college basketball world as a whole.

Bronny James Commits to USC, Bringing LeBron James’ Dream of Playing with His Son Closer to Reality

Bronny James, the son of NBA superstar LeBron James, has committed to playing college basketball at the University of Southern California (USC), a decision that brings LeBron’s dream of playing alongside his son closer to reality.

A top-50 ranked recruit nationally and a four-star prospect, Bronny played high school basketball at Sierra Canyon in Los Angeles. He was named a McDonald’s All-American after averaging 14.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.7 steals per game last season. He will now join a USC team seeking to reach the NCAA Tournament for the fourth consecutive time.

LeBron, who has achieved virtually everything possible in the NBA, has made it clear that playing alongside his son in his final season is his last remaining goal. In 2022, he told the Athletic, “My last year will be played with my son. Wherever Bronny is at, that’s where I’ll be. I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for one year. It’s not about the money at that point.”

LeBron would turn 40 during his son’s debut NBA season, but he reiterated on Saturday that he was “serious” about reaching this goal. “Just because it’s my aspiration [to play together] doesn’t mean it’s his, and I’m absolutely OK with that,” he said. “My job is just to support my son in whatever he wants to do.”
