LeBron James gifts Ohio State football team some sweet swag

It is well known that LeBron James is a huge Ohio State fan. James can often be found on the sidelines as a special guest for one or two games each year. And being one of the wealthiest athletes in the universe, King James likes to show his affection from time to time in the form of gifts. He has delivered once again.

The four-time NBA champion has given each player on the football team custom Ohio State Buckeyes Beats prior to the Big Ten opener against Wisconsin. The headphones are fashioned after the traditional OSU helmet complete with striping and Buckeye leaves. The swag was also accompanied by a hand-signed letter with words of encouragement as conference play begins.

Love him or hate him, LeBron is a native son and he wears his Ohio pride proudly. And if you’re a recruit considering the scarlet and gray, it’s just one more perk to love about Ohio State.

I’m sure many of the Buckeye players will be wearing their new swag when they take the field for pregame warmups this Saturday against Wisconsin. Be sure to check out our preview and prediction to get you ready for the start of the Big Ten season.
