    Ohio State commit Marvin Harrison growing in leadership role
    Ohio State added commitment No. 6 to its 2021 recruiting class on Thursday when Philadelphia 4-star receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. committed to the program over a slew of scholarship offers that were available to him.

    Harrison opened up on his decision with Lettermen Row, but to really get a sense of what the Buckeyes are getting in this country’s eighth-ranked wideout, I asked two of the people who know him best: Ohio State commitment Kyle McCord, who plays with Harrison at St. Joseph’s Prep, and his head coach Tim Roken, who has worked with the young receiver for the last two seasons.

    For McCord, the relationship with Harrison has been about much more than throwing touchdowns. A good receiver is always a quarterback’s best friend, and the Buckeyes verbal believes what makes his 6-foot-4, 185-pound partner-in-crime so good is that he has the ability to think like a quarterback himself.

    ”He has definitely helped my own development,” McCord told Lettermen Row. “I think we have really grown together as football players. It’s been a blessing to play in high school with him — and we’re still growing together. It’s nice to have a wide receiver who thinks like a quarterback.”

    Roken, who led St. Joe’s Prep to a state title in the sophomore season for McCord and Harrison, agreed.

    “They are each perfectionists in a way where if they take a rep and it’s incomplete or the timing is off, they either ask to take another rep or spend time after practice correcting the mistake,” Roken said. “They have a great relationship where if one of them isn’t having their best day, they encourage but also challenge each other to be better the next rep.”

    Harrison’s demeanor is also one of complete calm in public. But on the field and in the weight room, that isn’t the case according to McCord.

    ”Marvin is a huge ‘lead by example’ type of guy,” McCord said. “You’ll never catch him doing the wrong thing, and he has the most experience in our wide receiver group. He’s a very hard worker on and off the field.

    ”He’s a lead by example guy first, but he will speak up when needed — especially among the guys in his position group.”

    That’s just a natural part of the maturation process for a player capable of doing great things on the gridiron. There are steps taken nearly every day according to his coach.

    “I think his comfort level grew throughout the season last year,” Roken said. “His work ethic and competitiveness showed in the weight room and made the guys in his group and around him better. He took the same approach when on the field in the spring and summer leading into this season.

    “He’s consistently challenging himself to practice and play to a standard every day. His vocal leadership has grown as well, in coaching up the young guys on technique and assignment mistakes during practice or games. His overall engagement and comfort level has developed tremendously in the last year and a half.”

    WR — Marvin Harrison Jr., St. Joseph's Prep (Philadelphia), 6-4, 184
    Played a major role for the 6A state champs and No. 16 team in the country. When McCord went down with an injury the 2021 Ohio State commit put the team on his back and helped them close out the season on an 11-game winning streak.

    The biggest faller for Ohio State is receiver Marvin Harrison Jr., who fell from No. 59 to No. 89 overall.

    Dropped from #8 wide receiver to #14.......
