Marvin Harrison Jr. continued building his resume as the best receiver in America on Wednesday.

The dominant Ohio State wide receiver earned first-team All-Big Ten honors and was named the conference's receiver of the year for his efforts this season, becoming the first Buckeye to accomplish that feat since its inception in 2011.

The hardware should be no surprise for Harrison, as he was the only Big Ten receiver to be named a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, which will be presented to the nation’s top receiver on Dec. 8.

This year, Harrison became the eighth player in Ohio State history to record more than 1,000 receiving yards in a single season. He collected 1,157 yards on 72 receptions with 12 touchdowns in the Buckeyes’ first 12 games and will look to add to those totals in the postseason, whether that be in the College Football Playoff or a non-playoff bowl game.

Harrison is one of two individual position award winners from Ohio State along with his quarterback, C.J. Stroud, who won Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and Quarterback of the Year honors for the second year in a row.
