Brian Hartline, Ohio State’s wide receiver coach and one of the best assistant coaches in college football, named the top 5 receivers he’s coached at Ohio State Tuesday on the Bussin With the Boys podcast.

The list really puts into perspective how successful Hartline has been at Ohio State. The Buckeyes have seen a litany of NFL-caliber wide receivers come through Columbus, but Hartline says No. 1 on the list is still currently in college.

You guessed it. Marvin Harrison Jr, who was arguably the best wide receiver in college football last season, was Hartline’s first pick, followed by Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Garrett Wilson. He had trouble placing Terry McLaurin and Chris Olave, but also mentioned they would take the No. 4 and 5 spots.

Here’s what Hartline had to say about Harrison:

“I would say Marvin right now. (He’s) NFL-like, NFL makeup, NFL prototype, right? Marvin’s an NFL prototype,” said Hartline. “And then I think, you have to go Jaxon (Smith-Njigba), right? And the only reason why I feel very comfortable saying that is because Chris (Olave) and Garrett (Wilson) chose him as well. Chris and Garrett, you know Garrett had a hell of a year. Obviously, Rookie of the Year. You’d probably have to give him the nod just because of that.”

Harrison is a surefire first round pick next season, as will Smith-Njigba be this season. With Ohio State’s track record, what NFL GM wouldn’t take a chance on a Buckeye WR right now?
