Along with the school’s emblem, he tweeted, “Blessed to receive my first d1 offer from Duquesne #godukes.”
Duquesne University is a special place for the James family. LeBron James played for the team’s head coach, Keith Dambrot, back when they were both at Akron, Ohio’s St. Vincent-St. Mary High School.
Sports Illustrated reports that the team’s assistant coach, Dru Joyce III, played high school basketball with LeBron.
CBS Sports reported that Bryce, a rising sophomore, will play for Sierra Canyon School’s junior varsity team this year, while Bronny, a four-star prospect for the class of 2023, will play for the school’s varsity team.
