Ohio State graduate QB Braxton Miller told the Dispatch he "expects to announce his immediate plans next week."

By all accounts, Miller is nearly fully recovered and cleared from a second shoulder surgery. Head coach Urban Meyer and others have consistently stated Miller will be with OSU this fall and will compete with two quarterbacks for the starting job. Miller's announcement could absolutely back this line of thinking up, or he could transfer and play for another school immediately.

NFL Media ranked OSU graduate QB Braxton Miller No. 1 on their list for College football players with best intangibles.

"In a college football environment in which quarterbacks are impatient and transfers are more common than ever, Miller had a better reason to leave Ohio State than any of them -- and didn't. Once a Heisman Trophy candidate and a two-year star as a starter for the Buckeyes, he might find himself a third-stringer as a senior behind Cardale Jones and, if healthy, J.T. Barrett, who shared the role last year in a national championship run," College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread wrote. It seems as if the Buckeyes' former field general is happy to stay and compete for an opportunity to play quarterback. If Miller is unable to win the job, Ohio State will still find a way to utilize his talents on the field.

OSU graduate QB Braxton Miller has been cleared for full activity, according to Alex Gleitman of 247 Sports.

Miller received clearance to resume normal throwing activities on Monday, June 8 "with no limitations on his surgically repaired shoulder." Miller did reportedly experience soreness a few weeks ago, but that is apparently common. Urban Meyer has stated Miller will be given every opportunity to compete with Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett. Gleitman goes as far to cite sources saying the job is "Miller's to lose." We would still put the odds in Jones' favor.

NFL Media believes that if Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller doesn't win the starting job, "you can bet his versatility will get him on the field in some other capacity."

In two seasons as starter before he missed 2014 due to injury, Miller logged 4,133 passing yards and 2,339 rushing yards. "Forget that the Ohio State quarterback is a year removed from the playing field. Forget that he's considered the longshot in a three-man field to win back the starting job he once occupied with a commanding presence," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Chase Goodbread. "None of that makes one of the most gifted athletes in the college game any less versatile." Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said last month that he hasn't considered moving Miller to another position.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said Friday that he hasn't considered moving graduate QB Braxton Miller to another position.

Some would like to see Miller turned into a sort of slash player, but he's good enough, as a former Heisman contender, to win the job outright. "Barrett may have broken records, and Jones is the flavor of the month," ESPN's Brian Bennett wrote. "But Miller has a longer track record than either of them and will fight like crazy to avoid getting Wally Pipped. Let the best man win. But we'd all be crazy -- and dismissive of his illustrious past -- to count Braxton Miller out of the race."

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer put an end to transfer speculation, saying graduate QB Braxton Miller is "playing for Ohio State (this) fall."

Many, including this site, guessed Miller could transfer due to the logjam at OSU's quarterback position. The Buckeyes won a National Championship with Miller taking a snap last season. Instead, Meyer is certain Miller will be a part of the team in 2015 and we have no base to question him. How OSU uses their quarterbacks will be the most fascinating early season storyline in college football.

Fox Sports' Bruce Feldman thinks Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller is "the wildcard" in the Buckeyes QB race.

"To me, the wildcard in the race is Braxton Miller, the two-time Big Ten MVP who is trying to recover from shoulder injuries. Miller's the best athlete of the bunch. Does he eventually shift to another position to get on the field in 2015? Does he eventually win back his old job? I'm fascinated to watch this play out," Feldman wrote. With Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett leading the race, it could take an injury for Miller to get his job back. The Buckeyes could easily rely on either QB to get the job done with such a loaded roster in 2015.

Ohio State senior QB Braxton Miller is "badly in need of time in the spotlight to prove himself as a prospect to NFL scouts," notes NFL Media.

Miller is an extremely interesting case as a graduate student on a loaded depth chart who didn't take an opportunity to transfer elsewhere for his final season of eligibility. Instead, Miller will compete against J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones for the starting QB job, a competition he is not favored to win.

Ohio State's University Vice President and Director of Athletics, Gene Smith, states that QB Braxton Miller is "not going anywhere," according to Eleven Warriors' Eric Seger.

"If you pay attention to him, he's not going anywhere. He loves it here first and foremost. He has a child. He's from here. He's in a good position," Smith told Eleven Warrior. "We have his medical records. Keep in mind, he's had challenges physically over the years. So he knows that this is a place where we're going to help him, we're going to take care of him." The Buckeyes prospect would have an opportunity to transfer and play in 2015 under the graduate label, but from the look of things Miller may be happy to stay where he's at, and gamble on his talents.
May 18 - 3:03 PM

The Columbus Dispatch reports that Ohio State HC Urban Meyer "hasn't had any discussion" with QB Braxton Miller about playing a position other than QB.

While QB Cardale Jones has earned every right to be the starter under center for Urban Meyer next season, Miller's role still has yet to be determined. The Ohio State prospect is recovering well from shoulder surgery, and was able to partially participate in the Buckeye's first spring practice. However, Miller still has the ability to transfer and play for another school in 2015 as a graduate transfer, if he chose to. Ohio State has a bevy of talent at the QB position, with Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones still in their stable for next season.
Mar 10 - 3:35 PM

Ohio State QB Braxton Miller tweeted he has resumed throwing.

Miller would theoretically be eligible to transfer and play in 2015 under the graduate label, but many around OSU say he is returning. Miller is recovering from shoulder surgery, which allowed to door to open for J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones.

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.
