Lamelo Ball is a very controversial player for many people because of the way his father, Lavar, acts towards the media. But with that being said, he is still a good enough player to play for any top college (Duke, Kentucky, Mighigan State, etc.) and likely will be a lottery pick. Even when you look at his three great team mates at Spire Institute who have all received Division 1 college basketball offers, Lamelo is a far greater player than all of them.

We will have to see what happens after Lamelo attempts to accept any offer and how the NCAA handles his eligibility. As we’ve Et to hear a peep regarding his situation.

Lamelo Ball has superior numbers and experience than all three of his star team mates, and yet Lamelo has not received an offer from a division one team even close to good enough for his current ability level. At some point it is obvious Lamelo Ball will get an offer from a major division one team that wants to take a chance, and don’t be surprised when is name is called very early 2020 draft night.
