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. Sep 30 - 8:42 PM

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.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller is scheduled to undergo season-ending labrum surgery on Tuesday.

Buckeyes HC Urban Meyer confirmed the news to the media, and added that Miller has been named a 2014 team captain. "We voted captains, and Braxton Miller was the high vote-getter," Meyer said. "Jeff Heurman, Michael Bennett, Doran Grant -- which is a great success story, his turnaround -- and Curtis Grant, which here is a guy that, once again, that's one of the great things about what we do for a living is to see young people grow up, and boy, has Curtis Grant done a nice job." Miller says he will return to school for the 2015 season. He was very close to declaring for the 2014 draft, so we won't be certain of that statement until the deadline in January.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller says he will return to school for the 2015 season.

"I am on course to graduate in December and I want to attend graduate school, and then return to lead the Buckeyes next season," Miller said in a statement. The quarterback will undergo another surgery to his right shoulder to repair a torn labrum. Depending on redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett's success this season, we are not sure if Miller's word on returning will stand. According to reports, Miller was very close to declaring for the 2014 draft. More evaluators will likely look at Miller as a running back after a second surgery to his throwing arm.

Ohio State announced senior QB Braxton Miller will miss the entire 2014 season.

The Buckeyes are confirming Miller re-injured his right (throwing) shoulder during practice Monday, but they have thus far refused to disclose the specific nature of the injury. Previous media reports indicate that Miller dislocated the shoulder on a throw in which he wasn't hit. "My thoughts and prayers are with Braxton and his family," Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said in a statement. "This is an unfortunate injury to a young man who means so much to this program and to Buckeye nation." Miller is saying he intends to return to Ohio State in 2015. "I am on course to graduate in December and I want to attend graduate school, and then return to lead the Buckeyes next season," he said. All eyes are now on redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, who assumes the starting job.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller will miss the entire 2014 season, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

It was the news we all expect. Miller underwent an MRI on Tuesday after re-injuring his right throwing shoulder during practice on Monday. J.T. Barrett will almost certainly be named Ohio State's starting quarterback shortly. We are not sure if Miller will take a redshirt season, as he was very close to entering last spring's NFL draft.
Aug 19 - 1:03 PM

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller reportedly re-injured his right shoulder during practice on Monday and his 2014 season is in doubt, according to beat writer Tim May.

Ohio State has not confirmed the news at this time. Miller was returning from shoulder surgery that took place in February. His practice time had been limited as his recovery had been slow. Miller just recently told reporters he was near 100 percent and was ready to start the season. Miller seemed to really struggle with his NFL decision last year, with many believing he wanted to enter the draft while he was getting advice to stay. Redshirt freshman JT Barrett will likely draw the starting nod now. The Buckeyes open against Navy.

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer said senior QB Braxton Miller is "right on schedule" in his recovery from shoulder surgery.

Miller is almost six months removed from the surgery. His throwing during practice sessions has been decreased as a result, but Meyer stressed that he's happy with Miller's progression. "If the game was tomorrow, we'd be very cautious with Braxton," Meyer said. "But we have three weeks." Ohio State opens against Navy later this month.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline wrote in his Big 10 preview that he is "really down" on Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller.

Pauline grades Miller as a Rds. 4-5 selection. "I must say I’m really down on Braxton Miller as he showed me little in the way of development as a passer last year," Pauline wrote. "He’s still more athlete than quarterback, more thrower than passer. Considering the ability he showed as a sophomore in 2012 and the reports from August camp last year its disappointing." Because of these criticisms, some scouts see running back as Miller's best positional fit in the NFL. CBS Sports' Dane Brugler outlined Miller's weaknesses in a post earlier this month: "Miller needs to continue his development as a passer for some NFL scouts to be sold. His touch and accuracy still run hot/cold with too many fastballs in his arsenal, needing to develop a change-up."

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline grades Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller as a Rds. 4-5 selection.

Pauline lists Miller as a signal-caller, while a few other analysts and scouts project him as a running back. Pauline hasn't written up Big 10 prospects, so we'll have to wait on his evaluation, but CBS Sports' Dane Brugler outlined Miller's weaknesses in a post earlier this month: "Miller needs to continue his development as a passer for some NFL scouts to be sold. His touch and accuracy still run hot/cold with too many fastballs in his arsenal, needing to develop a change-up. Miller needs to improve on his footwork and base while focusing on his mechanics."

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller "needs to continue his development as a passer for some NFL scouts to be sold," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"While much improved in areas, Miller needs to continue his development as a passer for some NFL scouts to be sold. His touch and accuracy still run hot/cold with too many fastballs in his arsenal, needing to develop a change-up," Brugler wrote. Miller needs to improve on his "footwork and base while focusing on "his mechanics" and improved "ball placement," Brugler noted. While some scouts are calling for a position change to RB, Miller is still in the early stages of developing as a quarterback. Unfortunately for Miller he has missed a large amount of time with injuries, so it may be too early to be calling for a position switch.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks believes Urban Meyer was "overselling Braxton Miller's pro potential" at Big Ten Media Days.

"I believe the Ohio State head coach was overselling Braxton Miller's pro potential at Big Ten Media Days. While the senior standout is undoubtedly one of the most dangerous playmakers in college football, he is not "close" (as Meyer suggested on Monday) to joining the ranks of the elite quarterbacks in the 2015 class based on what I've seen from the Buckeyes' star over the past few years," Brooks wrote. Brooks also added that the Miller's "game isn't polished enough to thrust him into the conversation with Jameis Winston, Brett Hundley, Marcus Mariota and even Connor Cook as one of the top quarterbacks in the class." It's imperative that Miller develop during his final year under Meyer, to silence all his critics heading into next year's draft.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller has dropped his body fat from 10 to 7 percent, according to Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman.

Despite the drop in body fat, Miller is actually up eight pounds and weighs in at 220. "I feel fast, clean." Nutrition has become a big part of some NFL teams' success, most recently with the Eagles. Many are seemingly already writing off Miller as a quarterback prospect. We are not one of them. He has plenty of areas to improve, however.

Despite OSU senior Braxton Miller earning a RB grade from a scouting service, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes the Buckeye is a viable QB prospect.

During the "first half of last season, Miller was a better RB prospect than at QB," Brugler tweeted. "But he showed clear improvement down the stretch. Loads of potential." We are closer to Brugler's stance than the scouting service. Miller missed a good portion of the 2013 season, but we are excited to see if he develops during his final year under Urban Meyer.
Jul 25 - 2:33 PM

One scouting service gave Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller a RB only grade, according to NFL.com's Andy Fenelon.

This fascinates us. While Miller is certainly still in the novice stages of his passing progression and has missed a large amount of time with injuries, it is early to be calling for a position switch. Miller had a difficult time choosing to stay or go following last season, but we are excited to see if there has been more development in 2014.
