Report: Lebron James was offered a Notre Dame football scholarshipPosted: July 21, 2012
It’s no secret that NBA star Lebron James is arguably the most freakishly athletic human ever to walk the face of the Earth. At 6’9”, weighing 250 lbs of pure muscle, he is among both the strongest and fastest players, not only in the NBA, but in all of sports.
With his insane athletic ability, it’s no surprise that as a high school football player, he annihilated his competition in similar fashion to the unfortunate souls whom he dunks on in basketball (*ahem* John Lucas III), making first team All-State in his sophomore and junior years.
Apparently, the Notre Dame coaching staff was well aware of Lebron’s unparalleled ability, as CBS Sports reported earlier today that Urban Meyer (or as he’s better known to Irish fans, Satan) offered him a scholarship to Notre Dame when James was in high school:
“I offered him a scholarship when he was a sophomore in high school at St. Vincent St. Mary’s,” Meyer said. “I was at Notre Dame. He was a receiver, and I was a receiver’s coach.”
I refuse to give Meyer any credit here in the talent scouting department because, I mean, come on. LOOK at Lebron. You think he maybe could have been good at football? Yeah, me too.
Just think of the possibilities! I mean, he was at a Catholic high school! What if he had played both football and basketball for the Irish? We could have turned both programs around completely with Lebron as our only notable talent.
Unfortunately, the above video claims that before he chose basketball, he narrowed his choices to Miami, USC, Michigan, and Ohio State. Could he have picked 4 more despicable so-called learning institutions? Just as Lebron was winning me over, I find this out…
Go to hell. You too, Urban Meyer.

Especially you, Urban Meyer.
