UCLA Basketball Recruiting: LaMelo Ball pulled out of Chino Hills High School

LaVar Ball to pull LaMelo from Chino Hills and train him personally

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

Various media outlets reported today that family patriarch LaVar Ball plans to withdraw 16-year-old LaMelo and have him home-schooled the next two years. 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 will be trained and home-schooled by LaVar for the next two years.

LaMelo's leaving will surely have significant effects on Southern Californian basketball, let alone Chino Hills.

"It's good for Melo", LaVar said. LaVar has threatened to have LaMelo skip college ball entirely and go play internationally before being draft-eligible.

Of course, LaVar didn't need to pull LaMelo entirely out of school just to get him away from a coach he didn't like. "He won't go to the NCAA". The young point guard gets to shoot 3-pointers from mid-court, cherrypick all game, forfeit any AAU game in which the ref makes a bad call and wear a signature shoe about a half decade before even the best players usually get one. "It seems like anyone who's training over there that coach don't want him in the team".

"They're going to come to the house and train with me anyways", LaMelo said. Gilling had told For The Win's Andrew Joseph in March that LaVar had undermined his coaching at times by entering the locker room and offering instructions from the stands that contradicted what he instructed the team to do.

After the game, LaVar confronted the coach, demanding an explanation for his tactics.

According to Sondheimer, LaVar was already having concerns about Chino Hills' new basketball coach, Dennis Lattmore, which was a factor in the decision.
