LeBron James wants to play a snap for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

LeBron James and company rolled into the Ohio State-Michigan game and gave fans a show. What's more, J.R. Smith shot a video and asked if he and LeBron would be eligible to play for Ohio State since they didn't go to college.

In the video, LeBron James can be seen saying he wants to play a snap for Ohio State.

Should Urban Meyer consider offering LeBron a scholarship? Is it even legal?

LeBron has always been thought of as an incredible athlete. Wide receiver is a logical place to start. Put his 6-foot-8 frame against any defensive back in college football and he wins that matchup, right?. Even Alabama's incredible defense wouldn't be able to stop him.

As it stands now, Ohio State is looking like a near lock for the College Football Playoff. They'd be even better with King James running routes.
