Nearly three weeks after saying LaMelo Ball could “sit out” his college career and prepare for the NBA if the NCAA rules him ineligible because of his signature Big Baller Brand sneaker, LaVar Ball has apparently decided to pull his youngest son out of high school, too.
The 6-foot-3 Ball is a junior at Chino Hills (CA) High School who has verbally committed to UCLA, but his father says he will now home school him and train him in basketball.
“It’s good for Melo,” LaVar told the Los Angeles Times, adding that he had had concerns over new Chino Hills coach Dennis Latimore. “Less distractions. He just needs to focus.”
