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.
Head coach Urban Meyer was optimistic on Tuesday that the situation would be resolved shortly.
"I shouldn’t comment on things I don’t know about," Meyer said. "I don’t know, other than they are telling me they think it's good. I think it’s going to be OK. People are asking me - 'It's all good, it's done?' I don't know."
Below is a screenshot of the post that was taken by Bleacher Report.
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.
