Marvin Harrison Jr. reveals motivating factors surrounding potential return to OSU
Marvin Harrison Jr. has not yet reached a decision on his plans for the 2024 season. However, he admitted there are some great motives to run it back for his senior season in Columbus.
On Thursday, Harrison met with the media after learning he was named a finalist for the Heisman Trophy earlier in the week. Harrison admitted he had goals to beat Michigan and win a B1G title while with the Buckeyes, something he hasn’t achieved yet.
“Coming into this year, I wanted to beat TTUN and win a Big Ten Championship, and obviously, I did not do that this year,” said Harrison. “I think it’s a great motive to come back if that is what I decide to do.”
With those goals unachieved, Harrison said it “opens the door” for a potential return. As things currently stand, he’s taking things day-by-day and remains undecided on the 2024 NFL Draft and whether or not to play in the Cotton Bowl.
“It’s something I definitely wanted to do in my Ohio State career and not doing that yet definitely opens the door for me to come back,” Harrison explained. “Undecided, just really taking it day-by-day at this time.”
While Harrison is undecided, starting QB Kyle McCord (a high school teammate of Harrison’s) has entered the transfer portal and appears to be on his way out of Columbus. Running back Miyan Williams also announced he’s going to the 2024 NFL Draft and will not exercise an extra year of eligibility in 2024.
