Marvin Harrison Jr. is the son of a college football legend and a Pro Football Hall of Fame wideout. He also happens to be a four-star wide receiver with offers from just about every Power Five program. After years of being heavily recruited, Harrison has made his college commitment.

Taking to Twitter on Thursday, Harrison announced that the would be committing to the Ohio State Buckeyes. His post included several images of himself wearing Buckeyes gear and his No. 8 jersey.

247Sports rates Harrison as the No. 54 overall prospect in the country for the Class of 2021. He is the No. 8 wide receiver in the nation, and the No. 4 prospect from the state of Pennsylvania.

The announcement from Harrison certainly seems to have come out of nowhere. He did not give any indication that he was on the verge of making a decision, and only recently took an unofficial visit to LSU.

As for the Buckeyes, they made him a scholarship offer this past January. But he has yet to make a reported visit to the campus.

With the addition of Harrison, Ohio State's Class of 2021 is now ranked No. 6 in the nation and No. 1 in the Big Ten by 247Sports. The class now includes five four-star prospects and No. 2 prospect in the country Jack Sawyer.

Harrison is currently enjoying his junior year of high school at St. Joseph's Prep School, but has been receiving offers since his freshman year. Syracuse - his father's alma mater - offered him his first scholarship in May 2018.
