Marvin Harrison Jr., after much uncertainty, has revealed his plan for 2024.
After what has been a roller coaster ride in football media, commencing with the removal of one future Hall of Fame coach, followed by ‘mutual parting of ways’ of another, sandwiched between the College Football GOAT retiring, it has, without question been a uniquely busy and shocking past 24 hours for sports writers, insiders and fans.
Now, there seems to be more big news just breaking, as it seems to be that the most hyped non-quarterback of the 2024 NFL Draft has officially declared, per Underdog NFL.

Marvin Harrison Jr. Officially Going To The National Football League
Despite reports coming out towards the end of the college football regular season that Harrison was genuinely considering a return to Ohio State, where his record breaking tenure saw him become one of the premier prospects in the upcoming NFL draft, it always seemed likely that Harrison would choose to declare in his first year of eligibility.
Although teammate and fellow highly touted prospect, Denzel Burke, decided yesterday to remain at school for another year, it seemed that Harrison’s elite level, Biletnikoff-winning play had very little to gain from going back to university for another year.
Marvin Harrison Jr. put together back to back 1,000 yard seasons for the first time in Ohio State’s long, impressive history. Yet, he and the rest of Ryan Day’s program failed to win the Big 10 in each of Harrison’s years with OSU – losing to Michigan 3 times in a row for the first time in over 25 years.
However, it seems as if the NFL Hall of Famer’s son will put that behind him in search of success and quite possibly, a Super Bowl ring, at the professional level. The Arizona Cardinals, currently picking at 4th overall, are considered the most likely landing spot for Harrison Jr. as of now, let’s see how this plays out.
