Like the famous "I'm going to Disney World" statement after winning the Super Bowl, Lebron James has announced he will be attending college. After winning NBA championship for the Cleveland Cavaliers and winning a state championship for his high school St. Vincent-St. Mary, Lebron is hoping to bring an elusive college basketball championship back to Cleveland. James famously skipped out on college basketball and immediately declared for the NBA draft after graduating high school.
According to my sources, it has been reported that James will be making a decision on a college within the next couple weeks. He has still not set up a date to take the SAT or ACT, so that will factor into the decision. James has said that the math section is not his strong suit, so it will be interesting to see how he scores on that part of the test. Some of the schools that James is considering are Cleveland State University, Ohio Technical College, and Cuyahoga Community College. I've been told that Cleveland State is a strong favorite for James because his former teammate Norris Cole attended the college. With a cost of $13,000 a year for instate tuition, James will still have an opportunity to earn some scholarship money to help with the cost. After taking a tour of the campus, James said, " I like the campus and I could see myself going here." Some encouraging words from the King.
I do have some concerns for the Finals MVP. Will be able to handle a communal bathroom in the dorms? Will he be able to handle the 8am classes? Can his stomach handle numerous boxes of Ramen Noodles? No matter what decision he makes, Lebron is expected to only stay for a year and then declare for retirement in 2017.
