Urban Meyer may very well be the greatest college football coach of all-time, not named Nick Saban.
Having won national championships at both Florida and Ohio State, Meyer now seems quite comfortable wearing his analyst hat these days.
He recently made a bold declaration that caused quite a stir in the college football world.
Meyer stated his opinion that Ohio State wide receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. is the “number one, best player in America.”
Harrison Jr. certainly gave credence to Meyer’s endorsement with an exceptional performance in the Buckeyes latest game against Maryland on Saturday.
The legendary Hall of Famer’s son hauled in eight catches for a whopping 163 yards and a touchdown.

Harrison Jr. of course comes from a lineage of football greatness, as the son of legendary NFL wide receiver Marvin Harrison.
There’s growing speculation that he could be a top-two pick in the highly anticipated 2024 NFL Draft if he decides to enter.
