Urban Meyer says he offered LeBron a scholarship at Notre Dame

By Royce Young | NBA writer

As we all know, LeBron James is a complete freak of a human being. The size of Karl Malone with the speed of Allen Iverson.

He's 6-foot-8, 260 pounds of pure strength and power. Basketball has changed a lot over the years but even still, LeBron is not built like a basketball player. He's built like he should be a completely intimidating football player.

Which he once was in high school at St. Vincent-St. Mary. And then Notre Dame assistant coach Urban Meyer noticed him. Enough so, to make him an offer, via the Palm Beach Post.

“I offered him a scholarship when he was a sophomore in high school at St. Vincent St. Mary's,” Meyer said. “I was at Notre Dame. He was a receiver, and I was a receiver's coach."

Of course the two have a different connection now as Meyer is the head coach of LeBron's beloved Ohio State Buckeyes. He still has eilgibility left, you know.

So, how good was LeBron really as a receiver?

"Great," Meyer said.
