Ohio State Buckeyes: LeBron James Might Help Recruiting

Tomorrow night, the No. 4 Ohio State Buckeyes will play host to the No. 23 Wisconsin Badgers. The match-up itself will be important, as it is the two best teams in the Big Ten Leader’s Division going at it, but the game itself won’t be the only important thing.

Miami Heat and NBA Superstar, LeBron James, will be in attendance tomorrow night. He will stand on the sidelines. James is an Ohio native and has always been a huge Ohio State fan, he will get to watch his favorite football team play in what could be their biggest game of the regular season.

Also, the Buckeyes “may” wear their 2012 Nike Pro Combat Uniforms, the same ones they wore against the Michigan Wolverines last year. Head Coach Urban Meyer said that the uniforms will add even more electricity to tomorrow night’s game.

Oh yeah, Braxton Miller will likely be back. Kenny Guiton will likely get a lot of playing time, but expect Braxton to get the start and attempt to lead the Buckeyes to victory. Miller was injured in Week 2, but by now he should be close to 100 percent.

Tomorrow night, Ohio State recruits will be on the sidelines, watching the Buckeyes do what they do best, which is play football. If you consider the uniforms, the game itself, LeBron James and the noise coming from 105,000 Ohio State fans, it could definitely lead to landing some big time recruits.

If you were a 17 or 18-year-old kid trying to figure out where you wanted to go play football, and you looked over and saw, perhaps, the best basketball player of all time standing feet away from you, wouldn’t you be pretty impressed? Of course you would.

Ohio State will be looking to pick up their fifth win of the season tomorrow. It won’t be easy, but if they can get past Wisconsin, then they very well could be on their way to their second consecutive undefeated regular season.
