Raised in the Flint, Michigan area, Kuzma is the son of Karri Kuzma, a high school shot put champion who attended college on a track scholarship. He has a younger half-brother named Andre and a younger half-sister named Briana. Kuzma is biracial. Kuzma met his father only once as an infant, but viewed the father of his half-siblings, Larry Smith, as a father figure. Karri Kuzma and Smith put a toy basketball rim in the living room for Kyle when he was only two years old, thus igniting his passion for basketball.
Kuzma has described Flint as “‘a really violent place there’s a lot of temptation to get into the streets.'” However, Kuzma described basketball as his “‘safe haven'”. Kuzma attended Swartz Creek Community Schools and transferred to Bentley High School in Michigan, where he averaged 17.9 points, 14.4 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 3.4 blocks per game as a junior. Kuzma sent tapes of his shooting at the YMCA to preparatory schools; Vin Sparacio, head coach at Rise Academy in Philadelphia, “saw a 6’6″, 175-pound, raw player who had a great feel for the game, and immediately brought him in.” As a high school senior at Rise Academy, Kuzma averaged 22 points and seven rebounds per game. Kuzma received offers to play with Division I schools including Connecticut, Iowa State, Tennessee, and Missouri, among others, before deciding on the University of Utah.

Is Kendall Jenner Dating with New Boyfriend Kyle Kuzma
Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons‘ romance cooled off at the end of May. But the Daily Mail this week suggested Jenner may now be dating another NBA player now since she was photographed hanging on a yacht with Los Angeles Lakers player Kyle Kuzma. But don’t buy too much into that: a source told Entertainment Tonight that their relationship isn’t romantic.
“The two were hanging out over the holiday as friends,” its source started. “They’ve run in the same circle for a while and there’s no romantic relationship between them. Kendall is enjoying being single after ending things with Ben.”
A second source close to Kuzma echoed the first source’s point. “It’s nothing,” the source said of Kuzma and Jenner’s relationship.
According to Hollywodlife After being romantically linked to Jordan Clarkson, 27, Blake Griffin, 30, and Ben Simmons, 22, it seemed like Kendall Jenner, 23, found a new basketball bae in Kyle Kuzma, 23. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star spent Independence Day aboard a yacht with the Los Angeles Lakers star. Yet, KUWTK fans should put the breaks on coming up with their couple name – Kezma? Kuzdall? – because an insider EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife that the only fireworks between these two that day were in the July 4th sky. “Kendall is very happy being single and Kyle Kuzma is nothing more than just a friend.”
