Marvin Harrison Jr.’s “silencer” celebration earns shoutout from LeBron James: “he’s H.I.M”

Marvin Harrison Jr., the star college athlete, has already established a stellar resume to be considered the best receiver in the upcoming NFL draft class by a landslide. The  Ohio State receiver played a vital role in their  37-17 victory over Maryland with his unique blend of power and athletic prowess.

However, after the stunning performances, Harrison pulled out one of LeBron James’s popular celebrations on the field. The NBA star also remained quick to recognize his recreated celebration from the college star.

Marvin Harrison Jr. earns LeBron shoutout

Throughout the first half of their matchup with Maryland, Ohio State’s offense struggled. Then, to help get things moving, standout receiver Marvin Harrison Jr. came out with his amazing footwork. The game’s circumstances quickly changed as he assumed the load on his shoulders.

Nevertheless, during the game, after linking up on a 17-yard touchdown pass, Marvin hit LeBron James’ coveted “Silencer” celebration. He chose to copy James as he knew Bryce James, the younger son of LeBron James, was in attendance at the stadium on an unofficial visit. 

Following the game, Harrison revealed that LeBron’s contribution to Ohio State football prompted him to give him a shoutout through the NBA star’s celebration in front of Bryce.

“I had a special gift with the LeBron cleats today from Nike. LeBron does a lot for Ohio State as a whole, so I needed to give him a shoutout there.”

LeBron did not delay in accepting Marvin’s shoutout that he expressed through an Instagram story titled “ When I say he’s H.I.M. That’s exactly what I mean!!! Stop playing with em 18!!!!!”
