LaMelo Ball Billboard Seen in Cleveland, Ball Reacts via Twitter

LaMelo Ball’s Ohio billboard. More

While LaMelo Ball's candidacy to play college basketball may still be a matter of discussion, he is reportedly considering several of the most marquee institutions in the sport should he make that step.

Aside from the obvious issues of whether or not those schools have an interest in recruiting him or taking on his outspoken father, LaVar Ball, LaMelo Ball would have to clear some very significant hurdles before securing his eligibility to play in the NCAA.

LaMelo Ball once scored 92 points in a high school game.

While the statement is undeniably a stretch, the youngest Ball was a former 5-star recruit before deciding to play professionally in Lithuania for a season, and his talent is undeniable.

"Today is LaMelo's first day in OH after announcing earlier this week that he's enrolling at Spire Academy to finish his senior year of high school". He's clearly a talented young man who might have a bright future as a professional like his older brother, Lonzo Ball.

He was on his way to the pavilion when Du Plessis floated the idea of seeking technological validation of Aleem Dar's decision. Gradually, du Plessis and Miller lifted their momentum, aided by a pair of narrow escapes against the offspin of Glenn Maxwell.

So, if LaMelo indeed is eligible to play college basketball, where would he play? This essentially means that student-athletes can not accept monetary compensation for their abilities or their likeness.

LaMelo Ball had 20 points and 10 assists in his debut with SPIRE Institute on Saturday.

Perhaps the most concerning piece of evidence working against Ball is his Big Baller Brand shoes.

LaMelo also appears to be living a lavish lifestyle. It's going to be fascinating to see how things play out as he finishes out his high school days in Ohio.
