These Prestigious Programs Top LaMelo Ball’s College Basketball Wish List

LaMelo Ball’s Ohio billboard. More

The state of OH moved on quickly from LeBron James.

According has learned that LaMelo Ball has been ruled ineligible to participate in the McDonald's All-American game, a showcase that helps scouts grade the top high school players both male and female, in their graduate year.

Ball, the youngest brother of Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball, announced this week he was returning to a high school in OH after playing overseas in Lithuania and in the JBA.

Within a day of his announcement, digital sports content producer Overtime erected a billboard on I90 in the 17-year-old Ball's honor - but it looks familiar. So we thought it would be pretty epic to celebrate his return to high school with a billboard, playing on another famous Cleveland billboard.

Ball is the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball and some scouts have surmised the now 6-foot-7 LaMelo is further along than Lonzo was at the same age, and that LaMelo will make a better pro.

Perennial powerhouses La Lumiere (LaPorte, Ind.), Oak Hill Academy (Mouth of Wilson, Va.) and St. Benedict's Prep (Newark, N.J.) have already announced that they have canceled contests with Spire Institute since his arrival, citing his professional stints.

That includes Spire coach Jermaine Jackson, who told TMZ Sports that Ball has the opportunity to eventually become the first pick in the National Basketball Association draft.

"As long as he maintains his amateur status, plays a full high school season and is in good standing with his team all season long, he'll be considered just like any other HS candidate".
