NBA superstar LeBron James never went to college. He was one of the few high school players to be drafted right out of high school. Being that he is from Akron, Ohio, he has always loved the Ohio State Buckeyes and had he gone to college, he would have probably gone to Columbus.
The school has had a very close relationship with LeBron and their basketball team uses his Nike brand of shoes over the last few years. The official name for the university is The Ohio State University and on Friday, they posted a picture of their new LeBron shoe display.
Calling yourself “THE LeBron School” when he never went there is a pretty big statement, but when they have had as long of a relationship as the Buckeyes have, I think it can be accepted. This new display is pretty cool and I’m sure it will make any recruits that experience it pretty happy.
