    Last month Kiyan Anthony, a four-star shooting guard in the Class of 2025 and the son of NBA great Carmelo Anthony, received an offer from his father’s alma mater Syracuse after they visited the school.

    Still, Carmelo says his son is on his own journey.

    “It was beautiful because I know how much it meant to him,” Carmelo told ESPN’s Malika Andrews Monday night at Sierra Canyon High School. “Of course, it means a lot to me. But this is his journey, his journey it’s not going to be my journey and his path is not going to be my path. So whatever he want to do, I just want him to enjoy it.

    “And people gotta understand, he’s only 15. This is all new to him, but we embracing it.”

    Bronny James, a Class of 2023 guard from Sierra Canyon (CA) and the son of LeBron James, outplayed Kiyan in a 62-51 victory. The game was played at Sierra Canyon 20 years after LeBron’s first high school game on ESPN and attracted celebrities like Kim and Khloé Kardashian and Scottie Pippen along with LaLa Anthony, Carmelo and LeBron’s family.

    Bronny is being courted by schools like USC, Ohio State and Memphis and recently took a visit to Ohio State with his father.

    He is expected to commit and sign in the spring.
