COLUMBUS, Ohio-Should he stay or should he go?
Braxton Miller was awarded the Silver Football, the Big Ten's player of the year award given by the Chicago Tribune, Thursday afternoon. It is the second-straight season in which the junior quarterback took home the trophy.
In an interview with the Tribune's Teddy Greenstein, Miller discussed many things, including his performance this season, Ohio State's Orange Bowl matchup against Clemson, and the disappointment of the Michigan State loss. What he said when asked if he would be around next season to win a third-straight Silver Football is most interesting, though.
"It's tough; I just don't know," Miller told the Tribune. "I've really got to sit down and go through the pros and cons. I'll talk to my parents, take it slow. Hopefully ball out on January 3rd and see what the scouts are looking at."
Coming into the season, it appeared Miller's junior year might be his last in Columbus. Many draft experts had Miller graded as a first or second round pick in August. But Miller struggled down the stretch, while other quarterbacks surged up the board. Based on where his draft stock is at, the smart decision seems to be returning to school.
But it's clear that Miller is, at the very least, contemplating a move to the NFL after Ohio State's bowl game.
What's the right move?
