Bryce James visits USC: Son of LeBron James pops up at Midnight Madness

Notre Dame (California) 4-star recently visited Ohio State

USC fans were excited to see Bronny James introduced at the fan fest Midnight Madness Thursday night, nearly three months after he was sidelined after suffering a cardiac arrest at practice. 

Bryce James, his younger brother and new Sherman Oaks Notre Dame (California) star was reportedly in attendance on an unofficial visit, according to a report from On3 Friday morning.

The younger James is a 6-foot-6 small forward, and a 4-star prospect in the class of 2025 and the No. 19 prospect in California, according to ESPN.

He spent his first two seasons at Sierra Canyon (California) with Bronny, where he played JV and made appearances off the bench as a sophomore. 

Bryce James then transferred twice in the offseason, first to Campbell Hall (California)then to Sherman Oaks Notre Dame in August, and should be featured in a bigger role than he's ever had on the high school stage this winter.

Notre Dame is the defending CIF Division I state champion and is a bubble team in the way-too-early SBLive/SI national basketball rankings.

Bryce James received his first high major Division I offer in early October when Ohio State offered. He also took an unofficial visit. The Buckeyes were in Bronny's final three choices.

He received his first offer from Duquesne in August 2022, and has deep ties to that program as its head coach Keith Dambrot coached LeBron James at St. Vincent's/St. Mary's in Akron, Ohio in the early 2000s.
