Only a handful of prospects in the college football Class of 2020 have committed, but teams are already hungrily chasing the top players in the Class of 2021. Among those players is a prized wide receiver who the Nebraska Huskers are hoping will sign for them.

According to 247Sports, the Huskers have made wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. a scholarship offer. Harrison Jr. hails from St. Joseph's Prep School in Philadelphia.

247Sports rates Harrison Jr. as a four-star prospect. He is considered a top 10 wide receiver prospect in the country, and a top five prospect from the state of Pennsylvania.

The Huskers are going to be facing some serious competition to get Harrison Jr.'s signature though.

In addition to offers from Big Ten rivals Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State, the Syracuse Orange - Harrison Sr.'s alma mater - were among the first schools to make him an offer.

As of writing, the Buckeyes are the overwhelming favorite to land Harrison Jr. 247Sports' Crystal Ball Predictions unanimously believes that he will be joining Ryan Day's side in 2021.

Marvin Harrison Sr. had a Hall of Fame career as a member of the Indianapolis Colts. He still holds the NFL single season receptions record with 143 in 2002.
