It wasn’t long ago that Braxton Miller was one of the most feared quarterbacks in the Big Ten, but now that the Ohio State Buckeyes starting competition is down to J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones, Miller decided to gracefully bow out and switch positions.
As a result, Miller will be serving as an H-back in Urban Meyer’s offense which means he will play a role similar to Percy Harvin during his days under Meyer at Florida.
While it could be difficult to make such a major positional change, Miller seems to be doing just fine.
According to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports, there is some “good buzz” about Miller during the early part of his transition to his new position on offense.
This is a great sign for Ohio State.
Miller is a big-time playmaker and he will help the offense create matchup nightmares regardless of where he is on the field. As an added bonus, the opportunity for a trick play will always be there.
It is going to be very interesting to see how Miller factors into the Buckeyes offense in 2015, but the early indication is he could fit in just fine wherever he is asked to go and he will likely be a major contributor.
