So, Ohio State’s Braxton Miller is a wide receiver now, and it seems to be going pretty well.
The two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year made his long-awaited debut as a wide receiver-slash-H-back Monday against Virginia Tech. The senior was previously a quarterback, but made the switch in part to pave the way for quarterbacks Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett.
It immediately resulted in a number of moments that had people going wild. Besides the previously shown diving catch above, there was this touchdown catch:
And then there was a spin move. Boy was there a spin move:
The King of Ohio was pleased.
During another touchdown -- yes, he had two -- Miller actually pulled a LeBron, and The King of Ohio was pleased again.
And then Miller paid homage to The King.
Miller redshirted all of last year due to injury, and was understandably emotional on Monday. "Tears were running in my eyes, I couldn't really talk. My eyes got super red," he said. "I just love my teammates. They believed in me, and they raised me up since I was injured. I'm just happy to be out there."
Overall, Miller finished with 140 total yards and two touchdowns. His two catches yielded him an average of 39 yards each. Ohio State won the game, 42-24. "I love Braxton Miller," head coach Urban Meyer said after the game. "I'm honored to coach him again."
