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. May 29 - 1:42 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.
