Harrison announced on Twitter in September that Notre Dame had made an offer to him. He also had offers from as far west as Arizona State and south as Florida.
But the Buckeyes made an offer to the 6-foot-4 junior in January, and he took an unofficial visit to the school a month later.
According to a tweet then, Harrison said he “fell in love as soon as I walked in” to Ohio State.
He was being recruited by former NFL receiver Brian Hartline, according to 247Sports. Hartline is the Buckeyes’ wide receivers coach.
