Urban Meyer Gushes About LeBron James, Calls Him 'Classiest Big-Time Athlete' He's Ever Been Around

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. 

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.
