Urban Meyer will likely be talking about LeBron James a lot now that the NBA superstar is back in his home state, playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Meyer has spoken highly about the two-time champion ever since he became the Buckeyes’ coach. Earlier this week, the Ohio State football coach said James will have a sideline pass to every Buckeye game.
Today, Meyer did some more gushing about James, appearing on ESPN’s “Mike & Mike” radio show as part of his ESPN “Car Wash” that will entail the Ohio State coach appearing on a number of programs.
Urban Meyer on LeBron: “He’s a Buckeye.” Calls him the classiest big-time athlete he’s ever been around.

Urban on LeBron: “He is the classiest big time athlete I’ve ever been around. When he walks into a room, he’s the CEO.”

It certainly helps the Ohio State football program having James around, too. It's a pretty nice recruiting tool to be able to say that the world's best athlete shows up to your games.
