LaMelo Ball Is Returning To High School At Spire Institute In Ohio

LaMelo Ball last played high school basketball as a sophomore at Chino Hills in Southern California

He's also been a walking billboard for the Ball family's Big Baller Brand. According to a report from SLAM Magazine, the 17-year-old is planning on enrolling at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio - one of the highest-rated prep schools in the nation.

LaMelo Ball's professional hoops career is taking a pause. because the youngest Ball brother is returning to high school basketball, having been accepted at a super exclusive prep school.

Now, he wants to use his global experience with players his age.

"I'm excited to return to school and rejoin my class on the court for my senior year", Ball said, via Slam. Then it was LaMelo Ball withdrawing from Chino Hills HS to be homeschooled.

Melo later played in LaVar's Junior Basketball Association league. and totally dominated the competition. I learned and matured so much.

"I thank my dad for the JBA Experience and playing overseas", LaMelo says of the move.

Ball, a 6-foot-7 point guard, left Chino Hills High School previous year while ranked the No. 7 recruit in the class of 2019 to be homeschooled, then later joined his brother LiAngelo to play for a team in Lithuania.

More of a training center than traditional high school, SPIRE is not a member of Ohio's OHSAA and operates independently. I think it helped my development.

Brantley told ESPN that Ball was not paid and never compensated for playing in Lithuania or in the JBA, keeping him eligible to play this season.
