Ohio State Receiver Marvin Harrison, Jr. Entering 2024 NFL Draft

COLUMBUS — Ohio State junior wide receiver Marvin Harrison, Jr. has announced that he is entering the 2024 NFL Draft.

Harrison won the 2023 Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s top pass catcher. He also finished fourth in the 2023 Heisman voting.

Harrison was also named the Big Ten’s 2023 Offensive Player of the Year and Wide Receiver of the Year. He is tied for third nationally with 14 touchdown receptions. This season he caught 67 passes for 1,211 yards, which followed his sophomore season in 2022 where he posted 77 receptions for 1,263 yards and 14 touchdowns.

He was OSU’s first Unanimous All-American wide receiver a year ago and repeated that feat this year. Harrison is Ohio State’s first two-time First-Team All-American wide receiver. He is also the first Buckeye ever to have two 1,000-yard receiving seasons. His eight 100-yard games this season is a school record, as is his streak of eight consecutive games with a touchdown reception.

As a true freshman, Harrison made his first major mark in the 2022 Rose Bowl where he caught three touchdown passes from quarterback CJ Stroud. It was the first of three career three-touchdown games for Harrison. In his 26 career starts, he caught 31 career touchdowns.

Harrison Jr. is sixth all-time in receiving yards (2,613) at Ohio State, sixth in receptions (155), third in touchdown catches (31) and first in 100-yard games (15).

Harrison Jr. was just the fourth wide receiver in the last 15 years to make the trip to New Yock City as a Heisman Trophy finalist. The other three were Amari Cooper (Alabama), Dede Westbrook (Oklahoma) and 2020 winner DeVonta Smith (Alabama).
