Braxton Miller checks in at 6-3.5 and 199-pounds with 4.47 speed. As one might it expect he currently holds offers from the nation's elite programs including Alabama, Cincinnati, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Virginia, Wake Forest and West Virginia.
Miller has great arm strength and has shown he can make a variety of throws throughout his career. He has a quick delivery and a very natural balance when he releases the ball. Miller is big, fast and physical and can hurt you with his arm or his legs. At this stage of the game more than anything he is a leader for his team both on and off the field.
One thing he needs to work on is his velocity on shorter throws making sure he is giving his wide receivers the best opportunity to catch the ball. He has great zip on all his throws and at this stage appears more comfortable in the shotgun. Miller is as dangerous with the ball in his hands as any player in the class of 2011 and is hands down the most athletic quarterback in the country. He possesses NFL athleticism at the high school level.
Miller has a good relationship with the Florida coaches but at the end of the day it's very hard to imagine that Ohio State will let this one get away. He is the top priority for Ohio State and I think it will be somewhat surprising if he left the state to play his college ball. Ohio State does not miss on the top in-state kids when they decide they want them and they want Braxton Miller in the worst way.
2009 Stats: Miller's passing saw a 53-percent completion rate for 1,091 yards and nine touchdowns. He added 467 yards rushing with 18 touchdowns.
