Interview with Ohio State QB Braxton Miller

Audio/Video posted July 25, 2013 in Sports, CommRadio by ComRadio Football Staff

Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller was one of the more popular players at day two of Big Ten Football Media Days in Chicago.

Mike Esse sat down with the pre-season Big Ten Player of the Year and talked about the rivalry between Ohio State and Michigan, how he deflects the Heisman hype and why Penn State is the hardest place he has played in his college career.

 

Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer talked with the media about his junior quarterback and said Miller "has the quick twitch and first step that I haven't seen very often."
