Former NBA No. 1 pick LeBron James has been talking to Ohio State sophomore quarterback Terrelle Pryor this fall about being in the spotlight as a hyped athlete, according to a report by ESPN.com.

James discussed his communication with the former top-rated recruit after a preseason game in Columbus on Wednesday, the report said.

Pryor lost two fumbles and threw two interceptions in the Buckeyes’ 26-18 loss at Purdue last Saturday.  No. 18 Ohio State will host the Gophers for homecoming at Ohio Stadium on Saturday.

Earlier this week, Pryor’s high school coach questioned how the Buckeyes offense was utilizing Pryor, according to an ESPN.com report.
