Braxton Miller undecided on returning to Ohio State next season
Miller, who missed the entire season with a torn labrum, is eligible to transfer and play immediately under the NCAA's graduate transfer rule. The 2012 and 2013 Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, Miller said he has not set a timetable for his decision.
Backup quarterback J.T. Barrett led Ohio State to a 10-1 record before fracturing his ankle in the regular season finale against Michigan. Third-string quarterback Cardale Jones led the team to victories in the Big Ten championship game, the Sugar Bowl and the College Football Playoff national title game.
With three successful quarterbacks, there has been speculation that one or more of them could transfer. Sports Illustrated's Pete Thamel reported that Barrett confirmed his plans to return next season.
"This is from somebody who is going to be in the competition, I don’t believe anyone is going to transfer,” redshirt freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett told SI.com on Monday night.
Ohio State defeated Oregon, 42-20, on Monday in the national championship game.
