Here's more from Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer's first appearance at the Pro Football Hall of Fame Luncheon Club at Tozzi's on 12th in Canton Monday.
Meyer said starting quarterback Braxton Miller, expected to be a Heisman Trophy candidate this season, didn’t have a great practice on Saturday with the defense “blitzing like crazy.” But Meyer said Miller is improving.
“He’s locked in, he’s dialed in,” Meyer said. “He’s a 3.3 (GPA) student, wonderful kid, great family, no issues off the field.
“He’s just so talented that he’s gotten away with a lot of unorthodox play where he just runs around. ‘I’m faster than you, so I’m not going to work so hard on my fundamentals.’ He could be a fine quarterback and he can throw, we’re working on that. And the guys around him … Devin Smith is having a heckuva spring, too. Braxton is doing much better.”
