Former Indianapolis Colts great Marvin Harrison is one of the best wide receivers in NFL history.

His son is shaping up to be an elite recruit in his own right.

Marvin Harrison Jr. is just a high school sophomore, but he is already a blue-chip recruit, and getting offers from major programs.

247Sports doesn't have a composite ranking for him yet, but the site's internal rankings have him at No. 16 overall in the class of 2021.

He's the No. 3 wide receiver, and No. 1 in Pennsylvania. The younger Harrison stars for St. Joseph's Prep in Philadelphia.

Syracuse, Harrison Sr.'s alma mater, was among the first to offer him. He's since picked up offers from schools like Ohio State, Penn State, Florida, and West Virginia.

Now, Michigan football has extended a scholarship offer to Marvin Harrison Jr.

The receiver announced the offer today:

It's far too early to know where Harrison may wind up in a few years.

He'll have plenty of big-time options when the time comes.
