LaMelo Ball is bringing the family to Ohio. 

Ball is enrolling at Spire Institute in Geneva for his senior year. 

He spent the last year playing professional basketball in Lithuania. 

Ball was ranked as a five-star prospect in the class of 2019, but withdrew from Chino Hills High School in California last October. He and his brother, LiAngelo, then signed with BC Vytautas in Lithuania, according to an ESPN report.  

The brothers returned to the United States this past summer and played in the Junior Basketball Association, a league run by their father, LaVar. 

Ball will play for Spire's high school team alongside Michigan State commit Rocket Watts and five-star junior Isaiah Jackson.
