COLUMBUS — Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller is officially coming back.

Miller announced through the school tonight that he will return for his senior season, confirming reports from last week the two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year would forgo the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound junior passed for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns with seven interceptions and rushed for 1,068 yards and 12 TDs despite missing three games with a sprained knee this season. Miller was projected as a likely mid-round selection if he had left early.
