    "let sb / yourself in for sth"??

    Dear teachers...
    today my question is about a PHR V with LET.. let sb / yourself in for sth
    I found this definition in the Oxford Dictionary for English Learners...
    to involve sb/yourself in sth that is likely to be unpleasant or difficult: I volunteered to help, and then I thought ‘Oh no, what have I let myself in for!’
    I have to give another example, so I have written this and don´t know if it is right:
    His parents say this is an ordinary opportunity, so he will end up letting him in for what he doesn’t desire the most.
    Well... Thank you!!! bye bye

    him in for what he doesn’t desire the most.
    himself in for something he doesn't really want to do???
