Like father, like son.
Though he’s just a sophomore, the 6’5″ Kiyan has been playing on the varsity team at Christ the King High School in Queens, 뉴욕. The Brooklyn native will be graduating in the class of 2025, and if he accepts the offer, he’d be in Syracuse’s class of ’29.
“Beyond blessed to receive an offer from Syracuse University! #GOORANGE,” Kiyan wrote on his Twitter announcement on Sunday.
His dad, 38, 또한 shared the exciting news on his Instagram Story, 쓰기, “Just the beginning.”
The 10-time NBA All-Star has played for the Denver Nuggets, New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, Houston Rockets, Portland Trail Blazers and most recently, the Los Angeles Lakers. After a difficult season of injuries, Carmelo is currently a free agent.
Equally as excited as Carmelo is Kiyan’s mom 라 라 안토니, 40, who called herself the “proudest mom on the planet” as she shared a series of photos of Kiyan posing with multiple Syracuse-themed balloon displays.
