Marvin Harrison Jr. Wins B1G Player Of The Week Honors

The Buckeyes once again had a player honored by the Big Ten this week based on their stats from a recent game as Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. was named co-Offensive Player of the Week by the league office on Monday morning.

He shares the honor with Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa.

Harrison Jr.  would haul in seven receptions for 184 yards and three touchdowns for Ohio State in the team’s 45-12 win over Arkansas State to move to 2-0 on the season.

With his three-reception output, Harrison Jr. became only the second ever Ohio State wide receiver to record multiple three-touchdown games for the team, joining Joey Galloway. The remarkable note to Harrison Jr.’s effort is that he has done it over the span of three games with the Rose Bowl marking the other occasion.

The Buckeyes have been thin at the wide receiver position this season with Julian Fleming missing the entirety of both games played and Jaxon Smith-Njigba missing most of the Notre Dame game and all of the game against Arkansas State.

Harrison Jr. is the second Buckeye to be honored by the league as Tommy Eichenberg was named Defensive Player of the Week by the conference after week one. Eichenberg would also snag national Defensive Player of the Week honors by the Bronko Naguski commitee.

Michigan State’s Jacoby Windmon was named defensive player of the week, Iowa’s Lukas Van Ness won Special Teams Player of the week while Penn State running back Nicholas Singleton was honored as Freshman of the Week.
