01/25/15 - Miller hints at Ohio State return...Quarterback Braxton Miller of Ohio State, considered a Heisman Trophy candidate before he missed the 2014 season because of right shoulder injury sustained in August, might return to the Buckeyes after all. Miller is a senior and can transfer without having to sit out a year, and has been speculation that he might be heading to Florida State, Oregon or LSU. However, when Ohio State celebrated its national championship with a rally at Ohio Stadium on Saturday, Miller sounded like he wasn't going anywhere. "Privilege and honor to be part of this team," Miller told the fans. "Guess what, we've got another year to do it. So go Bucks." Miller would have to beat out Cardale Jones, who took the Buckeyes to the national championship after injuries sidelined Miller and J.T. Barrett. - The Sports Xchange
01/22/15 - Braxton Miller enrolled at Ohio State for spring semester...Maybe it matters. Maybe it doesn't. As of yet, Braxton Miller hasn't said. But for whatever it's worth, Miller doesn't appear to have any immediate plans to leave Columbus, judging by the report from the Columbus Dispatch's Tim May. Enrolling at Ohio State would hardly preclude Miller from transferring over the summer or even beforehand, but it's worth noting it doesn't appear to be a necessary step towards a potential out of the Buckeyes' uber-crowded depth chart at quarterback.
Miller received his degree in communications from the school in December and would have been eligible to become a graduate school transfer at the beginning of this semester. Miller's future has been one of the hottest topics of speculation in college football since J.T. Barrett emerged as a potential Heisman candidate midway through what would become the Buckeyes' national championship season -- speculation that only increased when Cardale Jones took over for Barrett, led the Buckeyes to victory in the Big Ten title game and two College Football Playoff games ... and then elected to return to school. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
12/31/14 - Urban Meyer expects Braxton Miller back at Ohio State for 2015...Cardale Jones, Ohio State's third-string quarterback at the beginning of the season and starter for Thursday's College Football Playoff semifinal against Alabama, has been the focus of many Sugar Bowl-related stories this week, but recent reports of a potential Braxton Miller transfer have Urban Meyer discussing the Buckeyes' quarterback situation for 2015. During media availability on Wednesday, Meyer was asked about Miller's status with the team for next season. Meyer acknowledged that while there have been "conversations" about the future, Miller is expected back in Columbus for his final year of eligibility.
According to the Palm Beach Post, Miller has "shown interest in transferring to Florida State." If the two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year does plan on leaving Ohio State, FSU will likely have to compete with any team looking for a quarterback this offseason as Miller would eligible to play immediately. J.T. Barrett's sensational regular season started these discussions earlier in the year, but no credible reports had surfaced linking Miller to a particular transfer destination until this week. - Chip Patterson, CBSSports.com
08/22/14 - Surgery scheduled for Buckeyes' Miller...Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is scheduled to have surgery to repair a torn labrum on Tuesday. The Columbus Dispatch reported that noted sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews will perform the operation in Pensacola, Fla. The injury is a partial tear. Recovery time is estimated between nine and 12 months. That would mean Miller would miss all of spring practice next year. Miller has indicated that he will forgo the NFL Draft and return as a fifth-year senior nest season. Miller had surgery in February for a partial labrum tear suffered in an Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. He was being eased back into action after sitting out spring practice, but on Monday he reinjured the shoulder while making a routine 7-yard pass. - The Sports Xchange
08/19/14 - Report: Braxton Miller reinjures shoulder, season in jeopardy...Here's a bombshell that could change the landscape of college football in 2014. The Columbus Dispatch is reporting that Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller reinjured his right shoulder during practice Monday, and that the injury puts Miller's entire 2014 season "in jeopardy." Ohio State has not confirmed the report, but a source tells CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler that Miller will undergo an MRI on the shoulder Tuesday morning. Miller was throwing an out-route in practice during non-contact drills and grabbed his throwing arm/shoulder and told coaches he felt something. Miller then spent the rest of the practice with ice on his shoulder, and was in good spirits.
Fowler was also told that Ohio State isn't sure how long Miller will be out, and won't be until it gets the results of the MRI. Whatever the results, losing Miller for any length of time would be a huge blow to the Buckeyes. Ohio State would go from a preseason favorite in the Big Ten to, well, nobody really knows. That's just the kind of impact player Braxton Miller is, as he's considered by just about anyone you ask a candidate for the Heisman Trophy this season. Miller had surgery on a partially torn labrum in his throwing shoulder in February after hurting it in Ohio State's Orange Bowl loss to Clemson. If Miller misses time -- for whatever length of time -- he'd likely be replaced by redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, who is second on the Ohio State depth chart. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
