LeBron James is no longer a full-time resident of the state of Ohio, but the Los Angeles Lakers' star forward remains a big supporter of the Buckeye State's college football team.

The three-time NBA champion was watching Ohio State's blowout win over Tulane this afternoon.

Following the win, James tweeted at star Ohio State wide receiver Parris Campbell. Like James, Campbell is an Akron, Ohio native.

"I (see) you today lil bro!! Keep shining #OH #GoBucks #AkronBoys," he wrote.

Campbell responded: "Appreciate it big bro! You know how we do it!"

Campbell and Ohio State have a major test next weekend. The Buckeyes are set to face No. 10 Penn State in State College, Pa. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. E.T. on ABC.
