Ohio State added another blue-chip prospect to its 2021 recruiting class Thursday when it got the commitment of four-star wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., the son of the Pro Football Hall of Famer.
Harrison announced his commitment on Twitter. He is teammates at St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia with another 2021 Buckeyes commitment, four-star quarterback Kyle McCord.
Listed at 6 feet 4 and 184 pounds, Harrison is ranked 54th among all prospects by 247sports.com and is eighth among receivers. He is the sixth commitment in the Buckeyes’ 2021 class, which is ranked fourth nationally at this early point.
Harrison’s father played 13 years with the Indianapolis Colts and teamed with Peyton Manning to form one of the most potent passing duos in the NFL. He caught 1,102 passes for 14,580 yards and 128 touchdowns. Harrison was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016.
