Bronny James, the son of Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James, is among the players named to the 46th annual McDonald’s All American Game. 

James is the only uncommitted player on the list to be invited to the prestigious game that features 22 of the top 23 prospects on the ESPN 100 list. 

James, standing at 6-foot-3, has made tremendous improvements on his game since joining Sierra Canyon High School in California, as multiple Division I schools are recruiting him. He’s considered one of the best two-way guards in the class of 2023.

Oregon, Ohio State and USC are among the teams currently recruiting James’ talents for next season, though the G League Ignite program is always an option as well. 

Other than James, ESPN’s top prospect Justin Edwards, No. 3 D.J. Wagner and No. 4 Aaron Bradshaw, who all committed to be Kentucky Wildcats, made the game. Reed Sheppard is also heading to the game, as the No. 21-ranked Kentucky recruit joins his future teammates.
