Kanye West’s new prep school ‘Donda Academy’ is already scooping up major basketball talent

No one is ever quite sure what Kanye West is going to focus on next. It could be sneakers, it could be fashion, it could be music, it could be tech. We have no idea because Kanye is Kanye. It could be anything on that list.

Looks like we can add one more thing to it, though, at least: And that’s basketball.

West’s Donda Academy — a school named after his late mother, Donda West — is relatively brand new. They’re still currently accepting applications and will only carry 60 students to begin with ranging from grades K-12.

They don’t even have a coach for the basketball team yet. But they’ve already reportedly recruited some of the biggest high school talents out there, per CBS Sports. 

Here’s every name connected to the school so far.
