Urban Meyer Still Believes Braxton Miller is Staying at Ohio State [VIDEO]
As college football teams begin preparing for summer workouts, speculation continues to surround the future of Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller.
As a graduate student, Miller could transfer under NCAA guidelines and be eligible to play in 2015. Combine that with the loaded Buckeyes backfield and it certainly makes sense that Miller could be looking to finish his career somewhere other than Ohio State.
The most popular school among speculators has been Alabama. The chatter has picked up since the Crimson Tide's A-Day game, which saw the group of quarterbacks combine for six interceptions. Following that game, Nick Saban said there were some positives but that no one has separated from the pack.
As the rumors have heated up, Saban said he won't comment on players at other schools but he's left the door open for a potential transfer.
"If there was somebody out there that I thought could help our team, we have a spot or two available that we could probably ... but it would have to be the right person in the right place that could make a contribution because that would be something that would have to be good for that person and it would have to be good for us," Saban said recently.
Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer is the latest to comment on Miller's future. During an appearance on the Dan Patrick Show Tuesday, Meyer said he expects the quarterback to return to Columbus in the fall.
"(The rumors about transferring) surfaced in January and I asked (Miller) and he said absolutely not," Meyer told Dan Patrick.
"I would say Braxton is staying from all indications that I'm getting. I don't go by hearsay; I just talk to the people involved."
Whether the Heisman Trophy candidate stays with Ohio State or decides to transfer to another program, a decision would need to come next week or two as teams break for the summer.
