In an interview with Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated, Braxton Miller announced his plans to switch from playing quarterback to playing in the receiver position for Ohio State. Miller was originally to have competed for the starting QB slot with J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones.

Miller first discussed the possibility of the switch with the team's strength coach in April. He approached coach Urban Meyer with the idea one month later. Within a couple weeks, he was meeting J.T. Barrett on the practice field after sunset to practice catching balls. Miller missed the entire last season due to a shoulder injury and was secretly looking for a fallback plan.

Miller will play H-back, which is a hybrid receiver position, next season. He plans to spend 20% of the time during training camp as a quarterback and the other 80% as a receiver, in case he decides to try making a comeback as a quarterback. Miller estimates he would need two more months to be fully ready to quarterback, so right now he is focused on the receiver position.
