Ohio State Buckeyes wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is about to do something his father never did. Harrison Jr. is a Heisman Trophy finalist.

Marvin Harrison Sr. attended Syracuse University. But was not invited to New York City for the prestigious award.

The younger Harrison is the only wide receiver that is amongst the finalists. The other three are quarterbacks.

Also invited are LSU Tigers quarterback Jayden Daniels, Washington Huskies quarterback Michael Penix Jr., and Oregon Ducks quarterback Bo Nix.

The star, who has been noncommittal on his NFL future, has had 67 receptions for 1,211 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also has had four carries for 58 yards and a touchdown.

Harrison Jr. will attempt to become just the fourth wide receiver to win the award. Former Alabama Crimson Tide wide receiver DeVonta Smith was the last to do it in 2020.

Tim Brown and Johnny Rodgers also won the award from the position. Brown attended Notre Dame while Rodgers attended Nebraska.

The best game of his season came in a win over Maryland. He had eight receptions for 163 yards in the October win over the Terrapins.

His worst game of the season came in the season-opener. He had two receptions for 18 yards in the win over Indiana in September.

The thing that may hurt Harrison Jr. in his attempt to win the award is he was held to less than 50 receiving yards in four games. In these games, he did not have more than 32 yards.

And two of these four games came in the final four weeks of the season.
