Braxton Miller To Play At Receiver Position At Ohio State

BraxtonMiller

In an interview with Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated, Braxton Miller announced his plans to switch from playing quarterback to playing in the receiver position for Ohio State. Miller was originally to have competed for the starting QB slot with J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones.

Miller first discussed the possibility of the switch with the team's strength coach in April. He approached coach Urban Meyer with the idea one month later. Within a couple weeks, he was meeting J.T. Barrett on the practice field after sunset to practice catching balls. Miller missed the entire last season due to a shoulder injury and was secretly looking for a fallback plan.

Miller will play H-back, which is a hybrid receiver position, next season. He plans to spend 20% of the time during training camp as a quarterback and the other 80% as a receiver, in case he decides to try making a comeback as a quarterback. Miller estimates he would need two more months to be fully ready to quarterback, so right now he is focused on the receiver position.

Ohio State Comes Back To Spring Camp

SPORTS BRONCOS-DOLPHINS 24 FL

Spring break offers much needed rest for everyone but getting back into the swing of things tends to be a little tricky. The Ohio State football team certainly felt the rust when they had their first practice after the break. They were in full pads Tuesday morning in Spring Camp as Coach Urban Meyer looked on in dismay. He acknowledged that the performance was not up to par with the offensive line being particularly uninspiring.

Yet the coach is still upbeat on his team, even providing additional rest for guys who have seen a lot of action in previous games and practice sessions. Meyer says that they are being more sensitive to the needs of student-athletes and are trying to reduce the risk of injury. The limited practice time applies to those in the 2000-rep club. Among them are Joey Bosa, Tyvis Powell, Josh Perry, Nick Vannett, Taylor Decker and Pat Elflein.
