Braxton Miller to switch to H-back role for Ohio State?

Ohio State's Braxton Miller is planning on switching from quarterback to an H-back role for the 2015 season. He will also return punts.

What It Means:

Miller is coming off of a shoulder surgery that kept him out of the entire 2014 season, and he's still not fully healthy. Head coach Urban Meyer said the switch is not official, but given that the team also has J.T. Barrett and Cardale Jones on the roster, the possibility of a switch has some substance.

Last season, the Buckeyes finished fifth in the nation in our nERD metric, which indicates by how many points they'd be expected to defeat an average opponent on a neutral field. Of course, they won the first ever College Football Playoff National Championship, as well.
