Braxton Miller has made the transition to wide receiver look pretty easy. Ohio State’s former All-Big Ten quarterback – who had to move because the Buckeyes had two other potential All-Big Ten quarterbacks – has two catches for a team-high 78 yards during Ohio State’s season-opening contest against Virginia Tech.
Miller also picked up the second receiving touchdown of the night for OSU early in the third quarter, giving the Buckeyes a 21-17 lead. Cardale Jones targeted Miller, who reeled in the pass, looked like he was about to lose his balance, evaded a defender and then tiptoed up the sideline for six. If you didn’t know any better, you’d have thought that the guy has played the position his entire life.
Of course, because Urban Meyer is a miracle worker, he’s managed to turn a career-long quarterback into his team’s top wide receiver, at least to this point in the night. Ohio State is unfair.
