Last week, a report surfaced that Ohio State Buckeyes’ quarterback Braxton Miller would return for his senior season in 2014.

On Thursday, the Buckeyes made it official.

Although it seemed as though Miller seemed like a lock to remain in school, he still wanted to discuss his situation with family, friends and advisers before finalizing anything.

”Learning from Coach Meyer,” Miller told Rusty Miller of the Associated Press when he was asked what he could gain by returning for the 2014 season. “He’s one of the best in the game. So just learn from him. Get better at my craft, I feel like. And graduate, too.”

Miller, who was forced into the starting sport during his freshman season in 2011 after Terrelle Pryor was suspended and eventually left the program.

Last season, Miller was outstanding despite missing two games because of an injury. He completed 162 of 255 passes for 2,094 yards with 24 touchdowns and seven interceptions and rushed for 1,068 yards and 12 touchdowns on 171 carries.
