"I feel terrible for Braxton Miller and his family. He's been a class act any time I've been around him," Hoke said.

Redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett is expected to replace Miller at quarterback for Ohio State as they move to an up-tempo offense.

Ohio State opens its season on Aug. 30 against Navy. The Buckeyes and Wolverines play on Nov. 29 in Columbus.
