Marvin Harrison Jr. has found his perfect match.
On Wednesday, the Ohio State wide receiver announced a NIL partnership with Monarc Sport to sponsor the Seeker JUGS machine, advertised as "the world's first robotic quarterback."

"The Seeker was a big part of my success last season," Harrison said in his announcement video. "I loved training with the Seeker because it allowed me to put in work by myself and kept me on top of my game. I'm super excited to join the Monarc family."
Monarc Sport created the Seeker as a robotic passing machine allowing multiple footballs to be loaded in for more reps. The unit can distribute six footballs every nine seconds, controlled with a touchscreen or joystick. It also replicates kicks and punts for players looking to work on returns.
Harrison frequently used the Seeker before and after practices last season – extra work that was crucial to his success in 2022. Harrison collected 77 receptions for 1,263 yards and 14 touchdowns for the Buckeyes. He was named a unanimous All-American and a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, presented to the best pass-catcher in college football.
"We couldn't ask for a better person and player to work with," Monarc Sport tweeted. "Marv shines both on and off the field. We're incredibly grateful to have him join the family and can't wait to keep seeing the Seeker be a game changer for the hardest workers in college football."
The deal between Harrison and Monarc drew praise on Twitter for its seemingly perfect fit, with Ohio State general manager of player personnel Mark Pantoni calling the partnership a "match made in heaven."
