COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — The Ohio State starting quarterback race is down to two for now.
Senior Braxton Miller told Sports Illustrated Thursday night he will change positions for this season and play receiver/H-Back in the Buckeye offense.
“It’s a long process to get back totally to throwing and throwing every day. This is the smarter thing for right now, God blessed me with a lot of talent and different opportunities. I’m going to have fun with that and still score a lot of touchdowns and help the team out and be dominant at that.” Miller said in the Sports Illustrated article.
Miller, a two-time Big Ten Most Valuable Player at quarterback for the Buckeyes, says there’s a chance he could return to the QB position but will start camp working mostly with receivers. Miller is coming off a second surgery for a torn labrum in his shoulder and has been slowing working back to throwing a football.
Miller is known for making dynamic plays in the open field and could be a welcome addition to an already stacked receiving corps at OSU.
