    In an interview at B1G Media Days, McMillan stated that Malik is going to be one of those big athletes like Perry and Hubbard. Said he may stay at LB, may move to TE or he could grow into a DE. He said he has already noticed him getting a lot bigger since he arrived.

    Our "Better Know a Buckeye" series continues with its 25th and final installment for the year. We profile Malik Harrison, an athlete/linebacker from Walnut Ridge High School in Columbus.

    Malik Harrison was a late target for Ohio State despite Harrison letting coaches know he wanted to earn a scholarship offer. He earned his offer on Dec. 4 with just two months before signing day. He explored late interest from Michigan State and Syracuse and even took prior visits to Indiana and Wisconsin before staying home with the Buckeyes on signing day.

    I retell Harrison's recruitment below and discuss the reasons for his commitment. Thereafter, I provide a scouting report for an athletic prospect who could play both linebacker and wide receiver, but will likely play the former for Ohio State. I provide a projection that Harrison will redshirt and close with a highlight film from his senior year.

    Malik Harrison enters Ohio State's recruiting radar late into the 2016 recruiting cycle. He received a scholarship offer on Dec. 4 last year with just two months to go before signing day. The late-blooming prospect and three-year starting Walnut Ridge quarterback accumulated offers from Iowa and Wisconsin in April and interest from Michigan State and Syracuse late into the recruiting cycle.

    Onlookers who had known of Harrison were surprised he did not commit on the spot. He had participated in Friday Night Lights that year, sending a strong signal that he wanted an offer from the Buckeyes. He had researched for a high school paper who was the last City League player to earn a scholarship offer from Ohio State (Verlon Reed, 2010). This was ultimately the scholarship offer he wanted..

    Urban Meyer announced Monday that sophomore linebacker Malik Harrison, the impromptu dunk contest winner and a special teams ace last year, will miss the rest of spring practice after undergoing shoulder surgery.

    The good news is Harrison, like Browning, will be ready for fall camp and Meyer said he expects him to play in the fall.

    He is a beast blitzing in the 3rd and long rushmen package... another Buckeye LB with a bright future.

    I love how we're starting to rotate our back ups in every position group this year... this will really pay off next year if we lose someone like Baker early to the draft.

    Like Young on the defensive line, Browning has been touted as the potential breakout star among Ohio State’s linebacker corps because of his past as a five-star recruit. While Browning still has to earn his way into the starting lineup, though, the linebacker who could end up playing the biggest role this season is Malik Harrison.

    Already a regular in Ohio State’s nickel defense last season, Harrison is the frontrunner to start at strongside linebacker in the base defense this season, which could make him a three-down linebacker – perhaps the only three-down linebacker – for the Buckeyes this year.

    While Harrison is Ohio State’s biggest linebacker, listed at 6-foot-3 and 245 pounds, he’s also one of its most athletic, giving him the ability to drop back and cover ground in pass coverage. Harrison had some issues with missed tackles last season, so he’ll need to become more consistent in that area, but if he can do that, he could be one of the Buckeyes’ top defensive playmakers this season.

    BuckIQ: Ohio State LB Malik Harrison has potential to wreck offensive game plans
    By Zach Boren
    Published on August 19, 2018

    COLUMBUS — For years, Ohio State has been able to hang its hat on some of the most impressive linebackers in the country. Now, it’s time for Malik Harrison to help continue that proud tradition for the Silver Bullets.

    Even through some of the ups and downs last season, pure athleticism never seemed to be an issue for the Buckeyes with Chris Worley and Jerome Baker holding it down on the outside. But it was during an injury for the latter where Harrison really started showing his potential, turning in an impressive performance in a dominant victory over Michigan State. Harrison didn’t have an abundance of opportunities like that one to show what he could bring to the outside linebacker position, but there is still more than enough evidence on film to see that he can be a game-changing force for Ohio State.

    With some uncertainty still about Tuf Borland’s return from a spring injury, that leaves Harrison as potentially the only sure thing in the starting lineup at the second level for the Buckeyes heading into the opener on Sept. 1. He’s still inexperienced at this point in terms of starting games, but Ohio State wasn’t exactly shy about getting him reps in key moments last year, either. Harrison has been groomed for this role, and the expectation here is that he will shine and set the tone for what could be one of the nation’s best defenses.
