When LeBron James returned to Cleveland to sign with the Cavaliers this summer, everyone knew it was going to be a big deal.
What no one could have foreseen was just how large the impact of LeBron’s return would be and how much it would effect everything in the Ohio sports scene.
According to Ohio State Buckeyes beat writer Kyle Rowland, Meyers not only has praised LeBron James’ impact on recruiting but has already texted the new Cavaliers star to tell him he has a field pass to every single Ohio State home game.
Meyer said LeBron has a sideline pass for Ohio State games. Said he already texted him and told him to be at every game.

This isn’t at all surprising as Meyers is happy about LeBron’s impact on his recruiting efforts and the Cavs star has done nothing except just show up in the state. It doesn’t seem like the two things would have anything in common, but having LeBron James back is helping everything in Ohio get better as jobs are being created, football recruiting is going well and hopefully the basketball team will start winning again.
Meyers may be having some fun with the whole matter, but LeBron is helping the Buckeyes already and he hasn’t even been a Cavalier again for half a month.
