Miami-Ohio's clever recruiting pitch to LeBron

As LeBron James decides between remaining with the Heat and rejoining the Cavs, another basketball team would like him to consider a third option that would allow him to have the best of both worlds.

Pretty clever, Redhawks, though you should know you're probably not even LeBron's first choice among college teams in the state of Ohio. First of all, LeBron's former high school coach is entering his 11th year as head coach at Akron. And secondly, LeBron has said he likely would have attended Ohio State had he gone to college for a year before turning pro.

Heck, the Buckeyes famously even have a locker ready for LeBron.
