LaVar Ball is always full of surprises, and he has apparently pulled off another one by sending youngest son, LaMelo, back to high school.
According to Slamonline.com, the 17-year-old LaMelo will enroll at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio. It is a prep school that plays against other prep schools. California high school teams, though, won’t be allowed to play against SPIRE.
A SPIRE associate academy director told ESPN that LaMelo never received payment or compensation for playing on a professional team in Lithuania or in his father’s JBA league, making him eligible.
