Ezekiel Elliott, Taylor Decker and other Ohio State football players tweeted a thank you to Cavaliers star LeBron James on Saturday.

It appears that James arranged for the team to receive a set of Beats Studio headphones. The team is in Texas preparing for the National Championship game on Monday night against the Oregon Ducks.

Elliott was questioned on twitter about the gift and whether it was allowed according to NCAA rules. He replied that if it was against the rules then athletic director Gene Smith wouldn’t have allowed the gift.

Urban Meyer also tweeted a thank you to LeBron and Beats by Dre.

LeBron James reportedly made $30 million for his ownership stake when Apple purchased Beats over the summer.
