Miami Heat star LeBron James never took his talents to Columbus, but that didn't stop Ohio State from giving him a locker in its recently renovated locker room. 

According to Jeff Eisenberg of Yahoo! Sports, Ohio State is using the locker for recruiting purposes: "Ohio State officials told reporters touring the basketball facility Tuesday morning that the purpose of the locker is to display shoes, jerseys and warmups from James' Nike line to potential recruits visiting campus."

James is a native of nearby Akron and refers to himself as a "huge Ohio State fan," as reported by Kyle Rowland of Eleven Warriors.
