Tweet of the Day: LeBron James

In America, football is king … Even King James follows football.

Wednesday was national signing day for college football—the day in which all of the top recruits coming out of high school declare which college program they intend to play with for the next three or four years.

LeBron James, now a nine-time NBA All-Star with the reigning NBA champion Miami Heat, was once an All-State wide receiver in Ohio during his football playing days in high school.

James caught 42 receptions for 820 yards and seven touchdowns in his sophomore year of high school. As a junior, he caught 61 passes for 1,245 yards and 16 touchdowns. That is where his football dominance ended.

After a promising junior year that ended in the semifinals of the state playoffs, James broke his wrist over the summer playing AAU basketball. That concluded his high school football career.

As the day went on, the NBA’s reigning MVP made sure to keep tabs on all of the action during signing day.

As the day drew to a close, James posed the question that should be asked: Where to go and who to see?

I always try to go to one college football showdown before my season starts back up. What campus/game will it be this fall?

Given the SEC’s history as the recent history as the preeminent power in all of college football, a ticket to the SEC Championship at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia might be the hottest ticket of the season—if not the matchup between Alabama and Texas A&M in College Station, Texas in Week 3 of the season.
