Quarterback Braxton Miller is almost fully recovered from his latest shoulder injury and planning to win back his starting job at Ohio State. Miller hurt his throwing shoulder shortly before the start of last season. He sat out while Ohio State won the national championship, with J.T. Barrett then Cardale Jones leading the Buckeyes. Miller got his degree and could transfer and play immediately for another school, but told the Columbus Dispatch that he’s staying at Ohio State for a fifth season. He’ll be part of a three-way competition for the starting job. “Schools reached out,” Miller said. “They reached out hard. And I kept my head where it needed to be, and I stayed smart with my situation. I’m from Ohio. This is my home state. This is where I started, and this is where I’m going to finish it.” – AP
