But that doesn’t mean he can’t have an honorary locker at Ohio State, apparently. Ohio State gave tours of its new basketball facility today, and while there are numerous state-of-the-art features, the LeBron locker is getting all of the attention.

According to Scout’s Ben Axelrod, it’s an attempt to lure recruits using all of his sponsored gear. The purpose of the LeBron locker is to display Ohio State’s LeBron gear to recruits on visits — Ben Axelrod (@BenAxelrod) September 3, 2013 What do you think Buckeyes fans – cool or overboard?
