DALLAS (AP) — Ohio native, Buckeyes fan and Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James is making sure that Ohio State’s players are getting an earful at the national championship game.

James helped each of the Buckeyes, who play Oregon on Monday night, get a pair of Beats By Dre headphones.

Ohio State officials say that the gift was not a violation of improper benefits to athletes, and that the value of the headphones will be subtracted from the total permissible gift allowance offered to players in the game.

A team spokesman said James, who represents the product, “facilitated” the players receiving the headphones.

A message was posted on Ohio State coach Urban Meyer’s Twitter account on Saturday thanking James for the headphones, which were pictured.
