Ohio State Football: Urban Meyer says Braxton Miller is not 100 percent, but he's close

The hopes are more than high for the Ohio State Buckeyes heading into the 2014 college football season, and a lot of the potential success obviously rides on quarterback Braxton Miller’s ability to stay healthy.

While this isn’t a knock on any quarterback on the roster behind Miller by any means, but there is no Kenny Guiton behind him this year, and that could mean trouble should Miller go down at any point.

That’s why it’s fantastic to hear from Urban Meyer himself that, while not completely back to his old self, Miller is near 100% and ready to help the Buckeyes on a national championship run.

“If he makes the same strides he made year one to year two, year two to year three and this year, year four, he could have a great year,” Meyer said. “He’s not 100 percent, but he’s close. Young quarterbacks want to look at everything but the coverage because it’s so chaotic back there, but he’s getting better and better at that.”

Meyer also said that Miller has been doing great throughout the summer workouts, and that has to make Ohio State fans more than ecstatic to hear.

This team has a lot they want to accomplish in Miller’s final year on campus, and there’s no doubt that he is the biggest part of making his last year in Columbus special.
