Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller is one of many college football stars that have been linked to an autograph broker that has been in the center of an investigation by the NCAA into Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Multiple pieces of signed memorabilia were available on eBay, but Ohio State quickly looked in to the situation and realized that Miller was not guilty of any wrongdoing.

From a FOX News report:

Athletic director Gene Smith said Wednesday the university talked to Miller after someone offered autographs and signed memorabilia for sale online without the junior’s knowledge. Smith said Ohio State, which is still on NCAA probation because of a memorabilia scandal two years ago, first heard of Miller’s signed items being available on Sunday.

Smith says there is no “issue” with Miller and the autographs.

Miller signed the memorabilia at a Big Ten preseason kickoff luncheon.

He becomes the latest college football star to be cleared of any violations, along with the likes of Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater and South Carolina star Jadeveon Clowney. Unfortunately for Texas A&M and Manziel, his investigation is not looking as positive.
