Marvin Harrison, Jr. Ohio State Buckeyes Wide Receiver NFL Draft

Ohio State Receiver Marvin Harrison Selected Fourth Overall In 2024 NFL Draft

Three-time Ohio State scholar athlete Marvin Harrison, Jr. has been selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the fourth overall pick of the 2024 NFL Draft.

Harrison (6-4 205) won the 2023 Biletnikoff Award as college football’s top pass catcher following a season where he posted 67 receptions for 1,211 yards and 14 touchdowns in 12 games.

Harrison is the only two-time First-Team All-American wide receiver in school history, earning both nods in unanimous fashion.

The 2023 season also featured Harrison as a Heisman Trophy finalist. He also won the Big Ten’s Offensive Player of the Year Award, the Chicago Tribune’s Silver Football Trophy as the conference’s best player, and repeated as the Big Ten’s best receiver award winner.

Harrison finished his Ohio State career with 155 receptions, 2,613 yards receiving, and 31 receiving touchdowns in three seasons. Those numbers rank sixth, sixth, and third in school history, respectively. Perhaps most amazingly is that Harrison did the bulk of that work in just two seasons as a starter.

Harrison’s father Marvin Sr. was selected 19th overall in the first round of the 1996 NFL Draft. Harrison, Sr. played all 13 of his seasons with the Indianapolis Colts where he started 188 of his 190 games, catching 1,102 passes for 1,4580 yards and 128 touchdowns. He is a Pro Football Hall of Famer who ranks fifth in NFL history in receptions, ninth in receiving yards, and fifth in touchdown catches.

Marvin Harrison, Jr. came to Ohio State as a four-star prospect out of St. Joseph’s Prep in Philadelphia. He was ranked the No. 14 wide receiver in the 2021 recruiting class per the 247Sports Composite. Tonight, he was ranked the No. 1 wide receiver in the 2024 draft class by the NFL.

Ohio State has now had 12 wide receivers selected in the first round of an NFL draft, which is more than any other school. Tennessee has had 11 first-round receivers, while Alabama and USC have both had 10 receivers selected in the first round.
