Ohio State's Miller cleared by NCAA for Instagram post

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller, who posted a picture of himself on social media with health care and nutritional products, committed a minor violation of NCAA rules but will not be penalized.

The Ohio State athletic department issued a statement on Thursday updating the status of the two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year.

Miller posted his picture on Instagram on March 24 with products from AdvoCare.

Ohio State reported the incident to the NCAA, which reinstated Miller's eligibility without any conditions.

Miller is a graduate student who started three seasons but missed all of the Buckeyes' championship season last year after shoulder surgery. He is expected to play this fall after rehabbing through spring workouts.
