The widely projected top-five pick Harrison will get a chance to display his skills on the same field as his NFL Hall of Fame father Marvin Harrison Sr. at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. He’ll take part in wide receiver drills March 2.

Chambers, Eichenberg and Hall will be the first Buckeyes taking part in on-field workouts at the Combine on Feb. 29. They’ll be followed March 1 by Proctor and Stover then Williams on March 2 and Jones March 3.

The Buckeyes have had a nation’s-best 77 total Combine invitees over the past nine seasons, according to a release.

Michigan had a Combine-record 18 players invited this year. Among the Wolverines will be quarterback J.J. McCarthy, running back Blake Corum and defensive lineman Kris Jenkins.

Ohio State’s most amount of players it has sent to the Combine is 16 in 2016, which included most players from its College Football Playoff National Championship team.

The Buckeyes will compete in drills among the best college football players in the country. LSU quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Jayden Daniels also received an invite to the Combine, as well as fellow Biletnikoff Award finalists Malik Nabers of LSU and Washington’s Rome Odunze.
