LeBron James said there are colleges recruiting his 10-year-old son, and the superstar isn’t happy about it. James told a Detroit radio station this week that his son, LeBron Jr., has already received scholarship offers. James did not specify which schools have contacted the youngster, but feels any such courtship “should be a violation. You shouldn’t be recruiting 10-year-old kids.” James is highly protective of his three children, and the 30-year-old intends to let LeBron Jr. enjoy his childhood. On Wednesday, James said his oldest son loves to play basketball, video games and doing his homework. “Let him be a kid,” James said. – AP
