Braxton Miller says he ‘can’ throw the ball if asked to do so

A headline of the Ohio State Buckeyes’ offseason was the move of Braxton Miller from quarterback to slot receiver. Sure enough, in the team’s season-opening 42-24 victory against Virginia Tech, the move proved to pay off as Miller had two receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown, and also some sweet moves.

However, Miller also appears to be itching to throw the ball again and recently told Bleacher Report’s Ben Axelrod that he would be able to throw the ball from a wildcat formation, but it was up to coach Urban Meyer to call for the play.

That would certainly add even more ammunition to the Buckeyes’ already powerful offense. It should not be forgotten that Miller was Ohio State’s quarterback for three seasons, completing 59.3 percent of his passes for 5,292 yards and 52 touchdowns to just 17 interceptions.

To add the wildcat option, though? That could make Ohio State truly unstoppable in 2015.

Ohio State returns to Columbus to play the Mountain West’s Hawaii Rainbow Warriors on Saturday.
