Ohio’s COLUMBUS — In Ohio State’s 38-3 victory over Michigan State, Marvin Harrison Jr. achieved something that certain wide receivers have been teasing in recent years.

 

He became the first receiver to record multiple 1,000-yard seasons for the Buckeyes with seven catches for 149 yards and two touchdowns. It shouldn’t be shocking that he did so. Rather, it’s the outcome of an experienced player at last being able to make the most of his three years in the programme without having any outside factors interfere.

 

Harrison is benefiting fully from an encore season that none of his predecessors had.

Harrison remarked, “That’s insane.” “Glory and praise be to God. He has bestowed upon me numerous blessings. I make a daily effort to honour those gifts by working as hard as I can. To be able to pull off a feat like that is a blessing from him. to accomplish something for the first time in Ohio State history. in particular as a recipient.

Having more than one 1,000-yard season is probably an overdue feat for a room being recruited and developed at the level it is under Brian Hartline. Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson should’ve been coming into the 2021 season looking to do it, but a global pandemic ruined their chances of only having an eight-game 2020 season.

 

Wilson participated in all eight contests, hauling in 43 passes for 723 yards and six scores. Prorated over the entire season, his stats are 81 catches, 1,356 yards, and 11 touchdowns for a team that would have advanced to the national championship game in a 15-game season. The following season, despite missing the Nebraska game and choosing not to participate in the Rose Bowl, he recorded 70 receptions for 1,058 yards and 12 touchdowns.

 

Achieving this would have made sense for him as a former five-star recruit, especially since he became the current NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.

In seven games, Olave had fifty catches for 729 yards and seven touchdowns. That would have been a school record 100 catches, 1,458 yards, and 14 touchdowns spread over 14 games. With 65 catches, 936 yards, and 13 touchdowns in 2021—having chosen not to participate in the Rose Bowl—he fell short of surpassing the 1,000-yard plateau.

 

Next was Jaxon Smith-Njigba, who entered the 2021 season as a third-stringer but ended up shattering records with 95 receptions, 1,606 yards, and nine touchdowns. In 2022, he was expected to build on that, but before he could even get started, his prospects were dashed by a hamstring injury in the season’s opening game.

That brings us to Harrison and Emeka Egbuka, who were both prepared to repeat their successful season-long achievement this year. Egbuka, who finished 2022 with 74 receptions, 1,151 yards, and 10 touchdowns, met the same fate as Smith-Njigba in that his third season was hampered by injuries, which prevented him from repeating. He would need to see a sharp increase in output in addition to OSU playing in all five of the possibly remaining games on the schedule.

 

After ten games, he has twelve touchdowns on 59 receptions for 1,063 yards. He has now achieved something that seemed unachievable, despite the fact that those who came before him were well-positioned to do so. His next course of action is to ascend both

Harrison remarked, “You know how many great receivers have passed through here.” That has great meaning. I’m really fortunate.

 

Linebacker for OSU named a semifinalist

The 20th candidate for the Chuck Bednarik Award is Tommy Eichenberg, a linebacker for Ohio State.

The best defensive player in the country receives this award every year. Players from seven different conferences and one independent, including four from the Big Ten, make up this year’s lists of semifinalists.

After having a breakout 2022 season and being named a consensus second-team All-American, Eichenberg has improved this year with a team-high 75 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, a sack, and a forced fumble. Once again, he is a key member of an OSU defence that has established itself as the best in college football.

 

After leaving the Rutgers victory with an arm injury that Ryan Day has determined to be not long-term, he was not present for the Buckeyes’ victory over Michigan State.
