Earlier this week, a video of LeBron James Jr. playing in a tournament in New Orleans last weekend surfaced. And it was impressive, to say the least. Even though LBJ Jr. is only 10, it's clear that he has a great feel for the game of basketball. He can pass and shoot way better than most kids his age.

Because of that, he has already received multiple college scholarship offers. But according to his dad, he's not going to entertain any of them anytime soon. LeBron James thinks it should be against the rules to recruit kids as young as his son.

"Yeah, he's already got some offers from colleges," LeBron admitted late yesterday. "It's pretty crazy. It should be a violation. You shouldn't be recruiting 10-year-old kids."

He's right. College coaches probably shouldn't be recruiting kids who aren't even in middle school yet. But something tells us that's not going to stop them from trying to do it.
