Ohio State football wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. can add Chad Johnson to the list of players he's impressed.

As the former Cincinnati Bengals Pro Bowl wide receiver watched the top plays on ESPN's "SportsCenter" Sunday afternoon, he was shocked that the Harrison's second quarter catch against Indiana was only No. 4.

"Watched the ESPN top 10 plays (and) the Marvin Harrison Jr. catch was 4th which (lets) me know someone at ESPN doesn't know the difficulty in having to contort your body," Johnson tweeted Sunday, "(plus) have the awareness to keep one foot in bounds while keeping the other elevated while securing the catch."

Johnson's tweet was something Harrison seemed to agree with, quote-tweeting the former NFL wide receiver with a shaking hands emoji.

In the second quarter against Indiana, the Ohio State sophomore wide receiver secured a 12-yard pass on the sideline from quarterback C.J. Stroud. As Harrison's body is sailing gout of bounds, he picked up his leg and dropped his right leg in bounds to secure the catch.
