Ohio State coach Thad Matta has competition.
he already has standing scholarship offers from both Duke and Kentucky, according to a source
These aren’t real scholarship offers. If LeBron Jr. gets hurt or doesn’t pan out, Duke and Kentucky are under no obligation to pay for his college.
These offers are just for show – to develop a rapport with a recruit, to show you believed in him before others (again, though, that’s a sham), to gain publicity (you’re welcome).
But in this case, if you think you’re currying favor with his famous father, think again.
