Bronny James (legal name LeBron James Jr.) has decided to stay in the upcoming NBA Draft. With this decision, his college eligibility is over.

James, who is the son of NBA legend LeBron James, played one season with the University of Southern California (USC) Trojans. Then after the season, he decided to enter the draft and keep his college eligibility.

Now, he will enter the draft after performing well at the NBA Scouting Combine. The belief around the league now is that he will be drafted into the league.

It is not clear yet if he’ll go into the second round. Or if he could sneak late into the first round.

His agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports told ESPN that James would stay in the draft. This came hours before the midnight deadline.

The 19-year-old was a four-star recruit out of high school. Since leaving the Trojans, there was initial belief that he would not get drafted.

Now, after the NBA Scouting Combine, it is believed that James will get drafted. He is currently listed as the 54th-best player in the draft.

While he is listed as the 54th-best prospect, he is not guaranteed to get drafted despite the media reports. Only 58 players will get drafted.

If he gets drafted, it would likely come on the second draft day. The two-day draft takes place on June 26th and 27th.

As a freshman, James averaged 4.8 points and 2.1 assists per game with the Trojans. Reportedly, only the Los Angeles Lakers and the Phoenix Suns have been granted permission to have a private workout with him.
