Braxton Miller could be the most exciting player in college football.  When he sharpens up his passing game, it may not be fair for other teams who play the Buckeyes.  It has been reported by theozone.net, that Miller is currently in San Diego working with QB guru George Whitfield.  

If Whitfield can turn Miller into the passer that he think he is, watch out.  His client list has many big-time names on it, such as Cam Newton, Andrew Luck, Ben Roethlisberger, Johnny Manziel, Logan Thomas, Landry Jones, E.J. Manuel, Tajh Boyd and many others.  This is a huge opportunity for the soon-to-be junior quarterback, who should have the Buckeyes in the preseason Top Five next year.  

Whitfield seems to be a confident man, as he has recently added Tim Tebow to his offseason client list.  He thinks that Tebow can be an NFL starter saying, “It’s doable, and I absolutely believe it can be done, and I would absolutely go in with him on it.  He is going to have to make the decision to morph to the position — to re-engineer himself skill-set-wise to quarterback. Footwork-wise, hip-generated throws, throwing up over defenders, it can be engineered.”

However, getting back to Braxton Miller and the Buckeyes, this has to come as good news.  This is the type of news that Buckeyes' fans love to hear.  If Miller can harness everything he’s learning and put it on the football field next year, this offense has a chance to reset the record books at Ohio State. 

Next season, Miller will be a junior with Heisman-hype and a great team to show for it.  Big leaps are expected for the QB from Huber Heights, Ohio.  With the offseason work he is currently putting in, there’s no doubt that he knows what lies ahead for next season.

Buckeyes fans will get a first look at the “new” Braxton Miller when spring practice kicks off.
