LaMelo Ball will begin his senior year of high school basketball at Spire Institute in Geneva, Ohio. While the school claims he was not compensated during his time in professional leagues, that answer didn't pass the smell test for a lot of people.

Ball was once committed to a top program in UCLA, where his older brother Lonzo played before becoming a top pick by the Lakers, but when he left to play overseas and signed with an agent his commitment was off because his amateur status had, presumably, been compromised.

Among those skeptical folks are the decision makers at La Lumiere School, who just happen to be an opponent on SPIRE Institute's schedule this year.

But, a rep for the organization's selection committee tells TMZ Sports LaMelo will NOT be in consideration to play in the game at the end of the season. citing his past professional status as a means for disqualification.
