LaVar Ball Announces He's Pulling LaMelo Ball From His High School


As he watches LaVar Ball wage a public power struggle with Chino Hills High School over control of its basketball program, UCLA coach Steve Alford should be pondering one pressing question.

LaMelo Ball will no longer be attending high school, this after news emerged that his father, LaVar Ball, believes he can do a better job training and teaching his son.

LaVar told the Times in August that there was going "to be new drama" at Chino Hills because "I don't like him one bit", referring to Latimore.

"I'm not dealing with the coach over there", the elder Ball told ESPN. Latimore played basketball at Arizona and Notre Dame. I'm not letting them mess with his head anymore. Now, he will have the next two years to train under his bombastic father and be homeschooled prior to heading off to college.

"That coach has his own frame of mind on how he wants to play and who he picks in the team".

USC's Tony Bland has hired a high-profile NY attorney to represent him against the federal charges that resulted in his arrest last week.

Will he then get housed when he plays real games?

LaMelo is already committed to the UCLA Bruins for the class of 2019, following in the footsteps of his brother LiAngelo, who is now a freshman, and his oldest brother Lonzo who was taken #2 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers after one season at UCLA.

It will be interesting to see how this decision ultimately impacts LaMelo's recruiting prospects, but if the move works out and the youngest Ball doesn't miss a beat on the court, LaVar could come away looking like a genius.

LaVar Ball is pulling his youngest son out of high school.

So who knows if LaMelo will actually make it to Westwood and follow in his older brothers' footsteps, Lonzo Ball and LiAngelo Ball.
