The top rated dual-threat quarterback in the nation(according to rivals) verbally committed to Ohio State on Thursday. Braxton Miller was coveted by Alabama and Florida, but when the time came to announce his college choice, he decided to stay at home and play for the Buckeyes. Braxton becomes the 12th member of the 2011 class.
The 2010 signing class was one of the lowest rated classes in recent memory. That, coupled with the fact that Ohio State has not signed a marquee quarterback since signing Terrelle Pryor in 2008, had Ohio State fans wondering what would happen next. It appears as if their prayers have been answered in the form of a 6 foot 3, 195 pound scatback with an arm. Miller has all the tools to become the next starter at Ohio State, but after watching Ken Guiton's performance in the spring game, if he wants that title, he'll have to earn it.
3 of Ohio State's early commitments are among the newly released rivals100. The class also includes 4 highly touted OL that average a mere 6'4" 310 - including Firestone's Tommy Brown(6'5" 330).
