COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State sophomore wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. was today named the Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year in the Big Ten Conference. Harrison Jr. is the first Buckeye to win the top receiver award in the Big Ten.
The sophomore from Philadelphia and St. Joseph’s Prep has had a spectacular year of route running, blocking, terrific catches and big catches, and he is one of three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award. He is the only Biletnikoff finalist with a teammate that also has at least 1,000 receiving yards. He is also the only finalist who has a teammate with at least nine TD receptions and at least 65 additional catches, such as what classmate Emeka Egbuka has produced.
Harrison, who is vying to become Ohio State’s first Biletnikoff Award winner since 1995, has simply been outstanding this year:
