Ohio State expects to receive only a secondary violation after Braxton Miller posted a photo that showed him with a series of nutritional products, Ari Wasserman of The Plain Dealer in Cleveland reports.

While he quickly deleted it, Miller posted a photo of him with a variety of AdvoCare supplements that appeared to be an endorsement of the brand. Last week, it was reported that the NCAA was investigating the incident as a potential endorsement violation.

According to Wasserman, the Buckeyes expect their quarterback to receive a letter of education from the NCAA, but that he will not lose any eligibility.

Miller is a two-time Big Ten Player of the Year, but he missed all of last season after re-injuring his throwing shoulder before the season.

He is in a three-way competition with Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett to be the starting quarterback for the Buckeyes next season.
