COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State junior quarterback Braxton Miller is coming back for one final shot.
Miller announced Thursday night through the university he will return for his senior season. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder had been contemplating jumping into the NFL draft a year early.
Miller has started for almost three full seasons. After taking over during a 6-7 season in 2012, under new coach Urban Meyer he led the Buckeyes to a school-record 24 consecutive wins before losses in the Big Ten championship game to Michigan State and Orange Bowl to Clemson.
Even though he missed almost three full games with a sprained knee in 2013, he passed for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns with seven interceptions and ran for 1,068 yards and 12 scores.
