During a celebration at Ohio Stadium to celebrate Ohio State’s title, OSU senior QB Braxton Miller said "we've got another year to do it," which some are taking as an indication he will return to campus this fall.

"Privilege and honor to be part of this team," Miller told fans. "Guess what, we've got another year to do it. So go Bucks." Miller enrolled for the spring semester at OSU, another indication that he seems to be leaning towards returning to Columbus. Miller won't participate in spring practice due to a shoulder injury. When he returns -- if he returns -- the preseason battle between Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones for the starting gig will be perhaps the most epic in the history of college football. It's important to note that Miller could transfer and play immediately in 2015 as a graduate transfer. This story isn't over yet.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang writes that "it wouldn't be a surprise if a team takes a chance on [OSU senior QB Braxton Miller] in the middle rounds, trying him out at quarterback and running back."

"Ohio State could have a tough choice to make between Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones," Rang wrote. "Barrett is the favorite to be the 2015 starter and Jones already said he's returning, but Miller is the wildcard. As a graduate student, he has the option of transferring, but some believe he will take his chances in the NFL Draft, even after missing all of last season with a shoulder injury. He's viewed as more of a versatile athlete than polished quarterback prospect, but it wouldn't be a surprise if a team takes a chance on him in the middle rounds, trying him out at quarterback and running back. Ohio State HC Urban Meyer and RB Ezekiel Elliott both said over the past week that Miller return. Elliott said Miller "will be back for sure." We'll find out shortly either way.

"There is a likely scenario" that sees OSU senior QB Braxton Miller transfer to LSU for his final season of eligibility, according to WAFB's Steve Schneider.

You will continue to hear teams linked to Miller and Everett Golson, just like you did with Jeff Driskel. These (potential) graduate transfers create a list of possible destinations and research from there. This story and process is far from over.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer expects senior QB Braxton Miller to return to the Buckeyes next season.

Miller has been linked to Oregon, FSU, Florida and Duke as potential graduate transfer destinations. "I’ve had conversations with Braxton (Miller). I expect him to be back at Ohio State," Meyer said, specifically. The question is: how will Meyer give Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones enough playing time to satisfy all three. Barrett is a better player than Miller at this time. If we had to guess, we think Braxton transfers this spring/summer or declares for the draft.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller is interested in potentially transferring to Florida State, reports Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post.

D'Angelo reported that the Seminoles have been told they're on a list of schools Miller will consider playing for next year. "FSU interested in taking Miller," the reporter added. "Miller can transfer and play immediately having already graduated from Ohio State." The marriage would make almost too much sense. FSU QB Jameis Winston will declare for the draft after the season, and Miller is far from assured of starting at Ohio State next year following the emergence of J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones. Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott said on Tuesday that Miller "will be back for sure." We should find out shortly after the College Football Playoff whether that is wishful thinking.

Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott believes that senior QB Braxton Miller "will be back for sure."

"Braxton, he's in high spirits. I think he's doing great, doing a lot of rehab on his shoulder to get back for next season," Elliott told College Football 24/7. "... Braxton will be back for sure." Elliot's thoughts echoes NFL.com's Albert Breer, who reported back in November, that Miller does not currently intend to transfer.

The Oregonian reports that Oregon hasn't been in contact with Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller.

With J.T. Barrett having made an extremely compelling argument to be the Buckeyes' QB in 2015 regardless of whether Miller returns, transfer rumors have been swirling for weeks. As a graduate transfer, Miller would be eligible to play immediately if he bolted after the season. Along with the Ducks, Auburn and Boston College have been bandied about as potential landing spots. Of course, Oregon and its high-flying offense might be the most intriguing destination. Starting QB Marcus Mariota is expected to declare for the NFL Draft after the season.

SI's Pete Thamel and Thayer Evans spoke with one NFL scout who expressed plenty of concern about Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller's play and evaluation.

"When (Miller) makes plays, it’s always running around," the scout said. "It’s not a rhythm, timing thing... For what (Ohio State does), he’s really good. For what the NFL does, not so good." The evaluator went on to say OSU cannot sit J.T. Barrett next year if Miller does return. And on Miller, the scout does not believe he has the instincts of Denard Robinson as a runner, but a change in running back is likely in his future.

Several sources who spoke with NFL.com's Albert Breer said that Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller does not currently intend to transfer.

Miler's plans, according to these sources, are to "lead the Buckeyes in 2015." At the beginning of the season, head coach Urban Meyer said that Miller would not lose the starting job because of injury. However, given J.T. Barrett's all-world play, there will now be a competition in the spring. There's no guarantee that Miller will win that competition. It's still possible that Miller opts to transfer, but at least for now, that does not appear to be the way his head is leaning.

NFL.com analyst Mike Huguenin wrote that if Braxton Miller chose to transfer, he could possibly land at Mississippi State, Oregon or UCLA.

Miller and current Buckeye starter J.T. Barrett are set to compete in camp next spring, but speculation about a possible Miller transfer has been bubbling for several weeks. Analyst Huguenin speculated that the best spots for a Miller transfer would be schools that have outgoing draftable quarterbacks. That means Oregon (Marcus Mariota), UCLA (Brett Hundley) and Mississippi State (Dak Prescott). As to the Oregon possibility, Huguenin wrote that Mariota "is more advanced as a passer than Miller, but Miller is a more physical runner, and adding him to the stable of backs already on Oregon's campus -- wow." This is all fun speculation. For the time being, the most likely place Miller will end up playing next year is Ohio State.

NFL Media's Bucky Brooks believes senior QB Braxton Miller should move to RB if he stays at Ohio State in 2015.

"(J.T. Barrett) is a better passer. He's a better quarterback," Brooks said. "Braxton Miller should move to running back... I think that would be the best thing for him. I don't think he's a wide receiver and he's not a quarterback." Brooks added he does not think head coach urban Meyer could look at his team and believe the Buckeyes are better off with Miller as the starting quarterback next season. Meyer had previously been adamant Miller would be his starter once returning, but then seemed non-committal in recent weeks.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller bristled at the comments by Michigan State linebacker Taiwan Jones, saying that he'd "never heard of the kid."

Miller was responding to Jones' comments about how many Michigan State defenders thought current Ohio State starter J.T. Barrett was a better quarterback than him. "I feel like [Barrett] has a better arm, he’s a way better quarterback than Braxton," said Jones. Miller shot back with a tweet that contained the words "Never heard of the kid #34" which was followed by what appeared to be emojis of a sad frog and a cup of coffee. Barrett currently leads the conference with 23 touchdown passes and is completing over 65% of his throws. Miller is expected to return to the Buckeyes in 2015 and Urban Meyer has committed to starting him, though we don't necessarily buy that.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer believes senior QB Braxton Miller will return to school in 2015, and announced him as starter.

"Braxton is our quarterback," Meyer said. "To be fair to Braxton, Big Ten Player of the Year. But it's good to know we've got both of them." In other words, Miller will start over freshman J.T. Barrett next season regardless of how well Barrett plays this year. Miller, who is out for the year after undergoing right shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum, said last month that he would return to school for the 2015 season. Because he was very close to declaring for the 2014 draft, we'll wait until the winter filing deadline before officially writing him in for the 2016 draft.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller's torn labrum surgery was successful.

Buckeyes' HC Urban Meyer said on the Big Ten's Tuesday conference call that the surgery, performed by Dr. James Andrews, went according to plan. Miller wrecked his throwing shoulder in practice on Aug. 18. He was named team captain anyway and says he will return to school in 2015. Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett has assumed the starting job.
