Is Marvin Harrison Jr.’s time as a Buckeye over?

Friday night provided a possible hint.

Two hours before kickoff in the Cotton Bowl Classic versus Missouri, Ohio State announced that Harrison would not be playing in the game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, a likely indication that the great Buckeyes wide receiver will forego his senior season and enter the NFL draft in 2024.

Harrison was present at the Cotton Bowl workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday, but he was not in pads and was not a full participant during the hours open to reporters. While his teammates stretched and began practice Tuesday, Harrison rode a stationary bike on the sideline. He also did not take part in post-practice interviews with media.
