Ohio State wide receiver and former quarterback Braxton Miller was once thought to be considering a transfer to Alabama following the 2014 season, what with the Buckeyes having a logjam at quarterback, but Miller put that rumor to rest at Senior Bowl practices this week.
Speaking to reporters, including Michael Casagrande of AL.com, Miller said that he never once considered a transfer and that the rumor only began because he was rehabbing his injured shoulder down in Alabama and he not once had any contact with the Crimson Tide’s staff.
“That’s where I was doing my rehab at so people thought I was going down there to visit Alabama,” Miller said.
“Yeah man, but it got me a lot of Alabama fans, though,” Miller said. “They’re very friendly. I appreciate all the Alabama fans who accepted me. But there was a lot of things going on outside of that.”
Miller went on to post 25 catches for 340 yards and three touchdowns this past season and is apparently performing quite well at the Senior Bowl, so it looks like the move to wideout could end up benefitting him tremendously.
Just the same, one can’t help but wonder what could have been had Miller taken his talents to Tuscaloosa.
