When Ohio State takes on Wisconsin Saturday, LeBron James will be on the sidelines.



According to Ben Axelrod of BuckeyeSports.com, James will also be giving the team a pregame speech.



It's probably no coincidence that the Buckeyes will have a packed house of recruits at the game. Among them are Dante Booker and Parris Campbell Jr., commits from James' alma mater St. Vincent-St. Mary.



During preseason Big Ten Media Days, Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer expressed his admiration for James.



"When I see LeBron James, I hear that criticism, I do know LeBron, not very well, but what are we talking about? You are talking about the perfect opportunity to get turned right or turned left," Meyer said. "But he's one of the most driven human beings I've ever seen. He won't allow his team to. And I love using those examples we have and I love showing them, because our guys look up to them and there are other great players that don't have it."



Don't forget, James has a locker at Ohio State:
