Bronny James is officially set to play college basketball after making a huge and long-awaited commitment to USC over the weekend.

Yet on Monday, the son of the Los Angles Lakers superstar LeBron James caught some flack for a new and impressive ranking.

Per On3, Bronny has been ranked as a five-star prospect and the No. 11 player in the country in the class of 2023.

But according to some in the basketball world, Bronny is simply being overhyped!

"#11? Stop it…nice player, but this ranking is a joke!" another fan agreed.

"Bro ain’t no 11 best player in the nation lol I’m telling y’all man… last name goes FAR," another added.

After heavy rumors swirled and many guesses and chatter loomed over Bronny's recruitment, he announced his pick to play with the Trojans on Saturday. The choice comes perhaps as no surprise due to its proximity to his dad and the Los Angles Lakers.

The young combo guard is set to become the biggest sports figure at Southern California, and has already commanded attention comparable to USC's reigning Heisman Trophy winner Caleb Williams.

Bronny will look to make an immediate impact on the Trojans hoops team, which lost four guards to the transfer portal this offseason.
