Report: Braxton Miller Considering Transferring to Florida State

Published by Bleacher Report on Thu, 01 Jan 2015

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is considering transferring to Florida State, according to a report by Tom D'Angelo of thePalm Beach Post.Miller graduated from Ohio State in December, and the NCAA allows graduate students to transfer to a new school without having to sit out a year. Miller was touted as a Heisman candidate coming into this season, but a torn labrumright before the start of the season kept him off the field all year.His situation has been confused even more as other Buckeye quarterbacks thrive in Urban Meyers system. J.T Barrett had a phenomenal freshman year after taking over for the injured Miller, and when Barrett was injured against Michigan, third-stringer Cardale Jones had plenty of success in the Big Ten Championship Gameagainst Wisconsin.There has been speculation of Miller possibly garnering interest from Oregon, Ole Miss and others, but nothing has been confirmed.Although surprising, Florida State is an interesting possibility. According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora (h/t SportsIllustrated.com), current Seminole quarterback and former Heisman winner Jameis Winston is expected to declare for the NFL draft after the Florida State season ends.However, Miller isnt a prototypical pro-style quarterback. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher is known for developing quarterbacks and sending them to the NFL, but Miller is more of an option quarterback whose skills might fit better in an offensive system based more on the quarterback run game.ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit is a bit dubious of this situation as well.Braxton is a unique talent, Herbstreit said, via the same Palm Beach Post report. I dont see him choosing to go to Florida State. I could see Oregon, I could see Ole Miss because of his skill set and how he fits a little better with those types of offenses.Several quarterbacks have gone this transfer route, especially recently, and it looks like Braxton Miller could be the next. He is one of the most dynamic offensive threats in the country and will likely thrive in whichever scenario he finds himself.
