Justin Brantley, Spire's associate academy director, told ESPN that head coach Jermaine Jackson has trained Brandon Ingram, who plays with Lonzo Ball on the Lakers, the past few summers. He said as well this relationship managed to help bring both sides together.

Ball made the news official on Twitter saying he's also looking "forward to earning my high school diploma and winning with my new team!" He described that the prominent basketball player has looked to really focus on his game, along with his education, and of course, eventually graduate.
