So maybe the whole 'Braxton Miller at wide receiver' experiment is going to work out after all.
The former starting quarterback, and two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, missed all of last season due to injury. His replacement, J.T. Barrett, set a school record for total offense in a season before missing the final three games of the season with an injury of his own. His replacement, Cardale Jones, stepped in to lead the Buckeyes to a national title.
So Miller, a senior-to-be, transitioned to wide receiver with Jones keeping the starting spot. That's looking like a pretty good decision so far. Miller punctuated a stellar performance in the season opener against Virginia Tech with this ridiculous spin move on his way to a 53-yard TD.
Miller finished the game with 78 receiving yards, 62 rushing yards and two touchdowns as Ohio State trounced the Hokies 42-24. The No. 1-ranked Buckeyes continue their season on Saturday against the Hawaii Rainbow Warriors.
