Most college football fans already believe that Ohio State Buckeyes wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is a future top-10 pick in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft. And he may have just cemented that status with an unreal performance against Penn State.

The matchup was a battle of undefeated top-ten teams, so its importance to both teams doesn’t even need to be stated. Both defenses showed up in a big way, but the impact of Harrison Jr. was simply too much for Penn State to overcome.

Harrison was essentially the only productive piece of the Buckeyes offense on Saturday, completely carrying the load for Ohio State’s receiving corps.

He finished the game with 11 receptions for 162 receiving yards to go along with the biggest catch of the game, an 18-yard game-sealing touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter to put the Buckeyes on top.

Ohio State quarterback Kyle McCord finished with 286 passing yards in the game. Over half of those went to Harrison Jr., a truly ridiculous stat line considering the tough defense he was up against.

This performance certainly caught the attention of those watching at home, as fans took to social media to praise Harrison Jr. for the spectacular day.

There is clearly no telling how good Harrison Jr. could be at the next level, but this performance has to have NFL teams clamoring to get their hands on him next season.
