LaVar Ball's latest: Will home-school, home-train youngest son LaMelo

LaVar Ball's latest: Will home-school, home-train youngest son LaMelo

Instead of enrolling LaMelo into a traditional high school, LaVar will home school and train him for the next two years. The outspoken father said he would home-school LaMelo for the next two years to keep him focused and away from the distractions created by his newfound status as a celebrity.

LaVar told the Times in August that there was going "to be new drama" at Chino Hills because "I don't like him one bit", referring to Latimore.

LaVar had already been having concerns about Chino Hills' new coach, Dennis Latimore. Gilling was sacked after the season, and LaVar continued to have issues with the new coach Dennis Latimore.

"I'm not dealing with the coach over there", LaVar told ESPN. Then, they will make the decision whether college - UCLA - is the path the youngest Ball will take. I'm not letting them mess with his head anymore. "It seems like anyone who's training over there that coach don't want him in the team".

While losing Ball will be a major blow to Chino Hills, the team still has 4-star recruit Onyeka Okongwu, who is ranked as the third-best player in the state of California in 2019, just a single spot behind Ball. Without me training those players at my house.

It will be interesting to see how this decision ultimately impacts LaMelo's recruiting prospects, but if the move works out and the youngest Ball doesn't miss a beat on the court, LaVar could come away looking like a genius.

The 16-year-old will still play travel ball.

LaMelo Ball is now committed to the 2019 UCLA recruiting class and according to LaVar Ball, he is "on track for UCLA". His plans to go to UCLA still stand, but if LaMelo doesn't prosper on the National Basketball Association level, this move could come back to haunt him.

LaMelo said he's not anxious about missing out on traditional high school life and not going to school with his friends.
