Alabama head coach Nick Saban was asked about transfer rumors regarding Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller on Tuesday and said he knows "nothing," according to

Miller has been the subject of transfer rumors due to the fact that the Buckeyes have a three-man quarterback competition with Miller, J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones. ESPN radio's Paul Finebaum reported Tuesday that he heard there was a "chance" Miller would transfer to Alabama.

"I'm not really to talk about any other players on any other team," Saban said before the question was finished. "I know nothing about any such rumors. I don't even know who you're talking about but I don't know about any of those things."

Miller missed the entire 2014 season after tearing his labrum during preseason camp. He is a two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and would be eligible to play immediately next season if he did transfer.

While Saban said he doesn't know anything about any Miller rumors, he said the Crimson Tide do have a "spot or two" available if there were a potential transfer somewhere that fit.

"If there was somebody out there that I thought could help our team, we have a spot or two available that we could probably ... but it would have to be the right person in the right place that could make a contribution because that would be something that would have to be good for that person and it would have to be good for us," Saban said.

Alabama finished 12-2 last season, losing to Ohio State in the College Football Playoff semifinals.
