Things couldn’t be going much better for Bronny James.

He has shot up recruiting rankings over the last few months and is now a 5-star recruit.

This week, he has had the chance to show off his skills to a national audience as a McDonald’s All-American.

Amid all of this, basketball fans are still waiting to find out which school Bronny will be representing next season.

That uncertainty hasn’t seemed to have any impact on Bronny’s NIL value.

Bronny has already secured a deal with Nike, a deal that got some attention this week as he wore Nike attire instead of Adidas while participating in the All-American game.

According to On3 Sports, that deal along with any other NIL deals Bronny will sign in college are expected to earn him a ton of money.

They project him to make $7.2 million per year on NIL deals for as long as he plays college basketball.

That huge number gives Bronny the highest projected earnings for any college athlete and there isn’t even a close second.

The next name up on the list also belongs to somebody who will be making the jump to the college ranks in 2023 and comes from a famous family.

According to On3, Manning is projected to make $3.7 million per year.

It’s certainly not a small number, but it is just over half of what Bronny is expected to make.

The hype just continues to grow for Bronny James as we get closer to finding out where he’ll play basketball next.

We can only imagine what that hype and the value of his sponsorships will look like if he ever actually does end up teaming up with his father in the NBA.
