Ohio State’s Marvin Harrison Jr. signs shoe deal with abnormal company

As we all know, and if you didn’t, Ohio State athletics is sponsored by Nike.

Many of the Buckeye athletes can be seen around campus wearing the Swoosh, and some do the same at the next level. Marvin Harrison Jr. is paving his own way, as it was announced on Tuesday that the star wide receiver has signed a shoe deal with New Balance.

Harrison is far from the face of the brand, as Los Angeles Dodgers superstar pitcher and hitter, Shohei Ohtani, also has a deal with them, but he is the first football player to do so.

It is a huge week for the Buckeye, as Harrison Jr. will soon find out where he will play next as the NFL draft is set to begin on Thursday. Many expect Harrison to be selected early, and that should be the case.
