Marvin Harrison Jr. is officially headed to the NFL. The Ohio State wide receiver officially announced Thursday that he will enter the 2024 NFL draft, ending his Buckeye career after three seasons.
Harrison’s official NFL draft declaration was always expected after Harrison opted out of the Cotton Bowl to preserve his health. He is widely projected to be a top-five overall pick and the first non-quarterback selected in the 2024 NFL draft.
In just three years at Ohio State, Harrison established himself as one of if not the best wide receiver in school history. He’s the only player in Ohio State history to top 1,000 receiving yards in back-to-back seasons, the program leader in career 100-yard games (15) and the first wide receiver in school history to earn unanimous All-American honors, becoming just the fifth player in Ohio State history to earn unanimous All-American honors twice.
Harrison became just the second Ohio State receiver ever to win the Biletnikoff Award, the third wide receiver ever to win the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year award and the first Ohio State wide receiver to be a Heisman Trophy finalist.
Harrison finishes his Ohio State career ranking sixth in school history in total receptions (155) and receiving yards (2,613) and third in school history in touchdown catches (31).
