HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio - Rated by some as the top quarterback recruit in his class in the nation, Braxton Miller of Huber Heights has chosen Ohio State.
Braxton, who will be a senior next season, chose the Buckeyes over Notre Dame, Georgia, Florida, and Alabama and will continue a relationship with OSU that began when he first attended a camp in sixth grade.
"I just wanted to get it out of the way, get it off my chest, get the pressure out of the way," said Miller, who has passed for 2,628 yards and run for 938 with 50 combined touchdowns as the three-year starter, although he has missed nine of 33 games due to injury.
Current OSU quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who will be a junior, was also widely regarded as the nation's top quarterback recruit when he was a high school senior.
MOELLER CASE: A Largo, Fla., man has pleaded guilty to felony battery for
assaulting Ohio State football player Tyler Moeller at a bar last summer.
Ralph Gray Decker, 28, did not speak at a court hearing. His attorney apologized to Moeller's mother.
Decker will be sentenced in August. He will pay $11,000 in restitution for Moeller's medical bills.
Moeller was attacked while on vacation with his family. He suffered a fractured skull and a serious brain injury. Moeller, who missed all of last season, has been held out of contact drills but has been participating in other drills.
