LeBron’s youngest son attends Sierra Canyon H.S

LOS ANGELES — Bryce James, the youngest son of LeBron James, will leave Sierra Canyon to attend Campbell Hall next season, a source close to the situation told ESPN.

Bryce, a rising 6-foot-6 prospect, played last season at Sierra Canyon alongside his brother Bronnie, who committed to USC earlier this month.

LeBron James has posted videos in recent years showing him working with Brony and Bryce as they continue to develop. While Broney James has generated most of the attention among the kids, Bryce’s size and potential have made him a popular player on the current Nike EYBL circuit.

Campbell Hall (Studio City, California) is about 19 miles from Sierra Canyon (Chatsworth, California) and tuition costs about $50,000 per year. According to sources, the James family has donated to build a new multimillion-dollar athletic facility on campus.

Bryce, 15, will play alongside other notables next season, including Richard Hamilton II, son of former NBA star Richard Hamilton, and Baron Bellamy, son of comedian Bill Bellamy.

Campbell Hall’s heyday was when the NBA’s Holiday brothers — Aaron, Jrue and Justin — all played there together.

Bryce will play for head coach David Grace, who was an assistant head coach at Vanderbilt (2019-2021) before serving as a high school coach at Arizona last season.

Grace said she is excited about potentially helping Bryce reach his ceiling as a basketball player.

“I want Bryce, if I can coach him, to be Bryce,” Grace told ESPN. “Because it’s special, and I want him to get the most out of his experience here at Campbell Hall and grow. He’s going to do more than just help me, but I’m going to try to do my part. I understand where he’s a Coming from the point. I’m not him. My family hasn’t been in that spotlight, but I’ve been around the spotlight and I can share my experience, or I can just understand his experience. I’m going to be there and grow as a coach.”

Grace said he has two experiences as a coach that will help him prepare for Bryce’s arrival. He was an assistant at Oregon State (2008-2013) under former coach Craig Robinson, brother of Michelle Obama. Grace said her interactions with President Barack Obama helped her understand the challenges for vetted individuals.

Grace was an assistant at UCLA under Steve Alford when Lonzo Ball — and LaVar Ball — arrived before the 2016-2017 season.

“I had to learn a lot. How I found out [fame] “Grace said,” shocking Lonzo in college. I used to see it every day. We went to Australia before the season started, and the first time I saw it was when we played a game against a pro team and the fans came on the floor after the game to go to Lonzo. And I’m like, ‘Wow, that’s the crazy power of social media.’ Lonzo has yet to play an official game at UCLA.”

Grace has been on the job for two weeks, but he said he’s already received about 60 calls from coaches around the country who want to schedule Campbell Hall next season. He said his priority will be to create a schedule that challenges his players but allows them to develop.

“We’ll try to put the puzzle together and make sure we play a great schedule,” he said.
