On Monday night, Philadelphia St. Joseph’s Prep four-star wide receiver Marvin Harrison became the 12th Ohio State commit to lock in their spot in the 2021 All-American Bowl.

The son of the NFL Hall of Fame wide receiver of the same name, Harrison currently ranks as the No. 21 wide receiver and No. 115 player overall in the 2021 class. Despite being listed as 6-3, 190 by 247Sports, Harrison recently tweeted some updated numbers that show him at nearly 6-5 and 203 pounds.

He was compared to Detroit Lions Pro Bowl wide receiver Kenny Golladay by national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn.

“Great frame with length but needs to add strength. Big, strong hands. Can eventually get to 220 pounds,” Dohn wrote. “Great route tactician. Gets out of breaks quickly and is precise in his route depths. Good release and technical at top of routes. Has separation skills. Uses size and length well to shield defenders. Red-zone threat. Catches every routine ball and tracks it well. So smooth he makes it look effortless.”

Harrison joins a big crew of Buckeye commits in the All-American Bowl, including his teammate at St. Joseph’s Prep, five-star quarterback Kyle McCord, the No. 3 pro-style quarterback in the 2021 class.

The other Ohio State commits that have accepted invitations are: Massillon (Ohio) Washington four-star wide receiver Jayden Ballard; Ironton, Ohio four-star linebacker Reid Carrico; Streetsboro, Ohio four-star defensive tackle Mike Hall; Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinett four-star cornerback Jordan Hancock; Hopewell, Va. five-star running back TreVeyon Henderson; Bellaire (Tx.) Episcopal five-star guard Donovan Jackson; St. Louis De Smet four-star cornerback Jakailin Johnson; Cornelius (N.C.) William Amos Hough four-star running back Evan Pryor; Pickerington (Ohio) North five-star defensive end Jack Sawyer; and Manassas (Va.) Unity Reed four-star defensive tackle Tyleik Williams, who committed to the bowl on Sunday.

Two of Ohio State’s remaining targets – Steilacoom, Was. five-star wide receiver Emeka Egbuka and Sammamish (Was.) Eastside Catholic five-star defensive tackle J.T. Tuimoloau – have both also accepted invitations.

The All-American Bowl is scheduled to be played on Jan. 2 at 1:30 p.m. on NBC.
