St. Joseph’s is now 4-0 on the year.
The 6-foot-4, 200-pound senior wide receiver has been committed to Ohio State for over a year. He is considered one of the top wide receivers in the nation. He had offers that included Penn State, Notre Dame, LSU, Texas A&M, and West Virginia among others.
247Sports has him as a four-star recruit and the No. 5 player in Pennsylvania. He was named to the roster of The All-American Bowl by the game’s director of player personnel, John Schmid. He will play at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX this January on NBC.
In becoming the Catholic League’s all-time leading wide receiver, he passed Will Fuller. The former Notre Dame wide receiver was a first round pick of the Houston Texans in the 2016 NFL Draft.
He is the son of Marvin Harrison Sr. who had a storied NFL career, spending 13 seasons in the league, all with the Indianapolis Colts. The elder Harrison was one of the best wide receivers of his generation.
A future Hall of Famer, eight times he was named an All-Pro as well as being selected to eight Pro Bowls and winning Super Bowl XLI.
