LaMelo Ball to skip last two years of high school basketball

  • LaVar Ball Pulling Basketball Star Son La Melo Out of Chino Hills High School

Middle son LiAngelo is far from being an National Basketball Association prospect and will likely end up as the Cooper Manning of the Ball family.

We hope that is not the case, but like with everything surrounding LaVar Ball, you can never tell what happens next.

But most recently, the Ball family is not being covered for something they are doing... but, rather, something they aren't.

LaMelo said he's not anxious about missing out on traditional high school life and not going to school with his friends.

Ball announced this week he was pulling his son, LaMelo, out of Chino Hills will home-school him for two years before heading to UCLA for college.

It's time for LaMelo Ball to pack his bags, update his passport and head over to play pro basketball in Europe.

"They'll have to sit back and wait", LaVar Ball said, who coaches the Big Ballers team, which both Lonzo and LiAngelo previously played for. He also chastised the basketball coach and administration of Chino Hills High School in California.

The decision to pull LaMelo out of high school was one that seemingly revolved around basketball and molding him into a stud college player and future NBA prospect. The outspoken father said he would home-school LaMelo for the next two years to keep him focused and away from the distractions created by his newfound status as a celebrity.

Should UCLA be anxious about LaMelo's eligibility? He's ranked the No. 4 PG and No. 17 overall recruit in the 2019 class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings. Ball then entered the team's locker room against Gillig's wishes.

Chino Hills coach Stephan Gilling was sacked after just one season on the job, and LaVar disputed reports that he was responsible for the coaching change.

While the justification for LaMelo Ball's homeschooling could be that simple and straightforward, there's another potential reason worthy of significant consideration: perhaps his new Big Baller Brand signature shoe, the MB1, would deem him ineligible for CIF competition at Chino Hills or another school.
