Uh oh. Young Brax was touted as a Heisman hopeful on the cover of Sports Illustrated last month. So you can kiss his ACL and the Buckeyes’ 2013 season goodbye.
In all seriousness, Miller might be the most captivating athlete in the nation next season, let alone Columbus, and he just led the Buckeyes to an undefeated season when nothing but pride was at stake thanks to sanctions stemming from infractions he had nothing to do with. (He’d never do that. Right?)
So he’s totally worthy of this honor, even if Aaron Craft almost stole it from him, as Craft is wont to do.
