Former Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller didn’t take any snaps in the Buckeye’s season-opening 42-24 victory over Virginia Tech. But the fifth year senior scored touchdowns anyway — twice. Miller lined up as a wide receiver for his comeback (from a shoulder injury that cost him his QB spot) and recorded 140 yards of offense, some of which came in spectacular, diving fashion. The quarterback job may belong to Cardale Jones for now, but the heart of Ohio State still seems to be the greatly gifted all-around athlete now wearing #1, Braxton Miller.
In 2013 Miller, then wearing #5 as a auarterback, threw for more than 2,000 yards while rushing for over a thousand. He scored 12 touchdowns. As the 2015 season gets underway he is making good on a promise he made as he contemplated the transition to wide receiver: “I’m going to have fun with that and still score a lot of touchdowns and help the team out and be dominant at that.”
