There has been a lot of speculation since the Buckeyes hoisted the first ever College Football Playoff championship trophy that quarterback Braxton Miller would consider transferring to another school to get away from the logjam at quarterback in Columbus.
On Tuesday afternoon, those rumors ramped up a bit.
Paul Finebaum of ESPN stated he talked to a source that believes there is a chance Miller transfers to Alabama after he graduates in May which would allow him to be eligible to play this upcoming fall.
Here is what Nick Saban said regarding the rumors, via Al.com.
“I’m not really to talk about any other players on any other team,” Saban said. “I know nothing about any such rumors. I don’t even know who you’re talking about but I don’t know about any of those things.”
After the departure of Blake Sims, there are questions marks surrounding the quarterback position.
Jacob Coker, who transferred from Florida State, is expected to be the guy to lead the Crimson Tide this upcoming season. However, if Miller was to transfer to Alabama, you would have to think the job would be his to lose.
Miller went down with an injury before the Buckyes’ championship season even started. He holds a 28-8 career record and would be an instant spark to to Alabama’s offense.
We will see if Miller does indeed leave Columbus for Tuscaloosa. If he does, the SEC should be put on notice.
