Harrison Jr. & Marvin Harrison Related?
Marvin Harrison Jr. looks to be as good for the Ohio State football team as Marvin Harrison was for the Indianapolis Colts.
With Ryan Day’s Ohio State football team poised to make some noise this season, people are wondering if sophomore wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is related to Marvin Harrison.
Harrison is entering his second season in Columbus. Although he was buried on the Buckeyes depth chart a season ago, Ohio State had two first-round picks in its receiving corps in Chris Olave
and Garrett Wilson, as well as Jaxon Smith-Njigba being the best No. 3 option in the nation. Smith-Njigba and Harrison got even more run in the Buckeyes’ Rose Bowl victory over the Utah Utes.
As a surprise to no one, Marvin Harrison Jr. is Marvin Harrison Sr.’s son. Like his namesake father, Harrison hails from Philadelphia.
Interestingly enough, he was high school teammates with Buckeyes backup quarterback in former 5-star Kyle McCord.
Harrison was a 4-star coming out of high school, but he & his St. Joseph’s Prep teammate were part of the same 2021 class.
