Urban Meyer says he offered LeBron a scholarship at Notre Dame
In high school at St. Vincent-St. Mary, LeBron James was a big receiver. And then Notre Dame assistant coach Urban Meyer noticed him. Enough so, to make him an offer, via the Palm Beach Post.
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.
