LeBron James, a native of Akron, Ohio, has made it clear this week that he's all-in on the 2014-2015 Buckeyes. James, who has an honorary locker in the men's basketball locker room, gifted the team custom Beats By Dre headphones Saturday. Now, with just a few hours until kickoff, he's giving at least one of OSU's athletes some encouragement on Instagram.
James took to social media to post a photo of himself with star running back Ezekiel Elliott, who went off for 230 yards against Alabama. James wants "Zeke" to strive for greatness.
There is perhaps no athlete more respected in the sports world than LeBron, so it's a high honor for Elliott. We'll see if the Buckeyes can make James a proud Ohioan tonight.
