Braxton Miller Switching from QB to WR
Ohio State fifth-year senior Braxton Miller told Sports Illustrated on Thursday that he will switch positions for his final season of eligibility with the Buckeyes.
Miller had been part of a three-way QB competition with redshirt sophomore J.T. Barrett and fourth-year junior Cardale Jones. Miller was the 2013 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year as a junior, but missed the 2014 season because of a shoulder injury.
Barrett replaced Miller at QB and was first team All-Big Ten, but got hurt vs. Michigan in the last game of the regular season. Jones then replaced Barrett and led the Buckeyes to a Big Ten title against Wisconsin, and then the national championship with wins over Alabama and Oregon in the College Football Playoff.
