We all know LeBron is an Ohio State fan, and his connection to the school's football and basketball teams goes beyond just a rooting interest.

Well, now that he's back in Cleveland, it seems he's being made a quasi-ambassador of sorts for the Buckeyes.

Urban Meyer, Ohio State's head football coach, has given the best basketball player in the world some specific instructions.

It's not difficult to see why Meyer wants LeBron around. Not only does associating your program with the best basketball player in the world seem like a good idea, but LeBron is a pretty cool dude. Especially to high schoolers. Especially to high schoolers considering playing their college football at Ohio State. 

The NBA season doesn't start until the end of October/beginning of November, so expect to see LeBron at Ohio Stadium a few times this season like he was for last year's Ohio State-Wisconsin game.
