We know that LeBron was a world-class basketball player in high school in Ohio, but he was also a beast of a football player. So much so, that Urban Meyer (then on the staff for Notre Dame) offered him a football scholarship to Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. I’ve always wondered what position he would’ve played.
“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.
