Even though LeBron James Jr. is only 11 years old, colleges already have their sights set on the future baller.

Both Kentucky and Duke University’s basketball programs have already extended scholarship offers to the talented teen.

While this says something of his talent, LeBron James isn’t too fond of the early scouting. Just last year, he very openly criticized college programs for recruiting his then 10 year old:

“Yeah, he’s already got some offers from colleges. It’s pretty crazy. It should be a violation. You shouldn’t be recruiting 10-year-old kids.”

Though he still has about 7 years before he enters college, we’re sure these two offers are the first of many that are sure to come his way!
