Braxton Miller Should Transfer to Kansas State


Braxton Miller will reportedly announce his future plans this week and if they include playing quarterback the NFL, then he should transfer to Kansas State.

Miller has this final collegiate season to make his case for NFL stardom and Kansas State offers a situation that is suited for pro quarterback auditioning. We love Joe Hubener and Jesse Ertz but there’s no quarterback competition at Kansas State if and when Braxton arrives. The Wildcats will again be good on the offensive side of the football but not too good. This is where Braxton Miller steps into one of the most versatile spread schemes in the country and has no problem standing out.

Transferring to Kansas State may not seem like a sexy option, but it makes more sense than Braxton pooling himself with the plethora of 5-star athletes at Alabama or Oregon. Just imagine Braxton Miller behind an offensive line bolstered by all conference left tackle Cody Whitehair and with the speedy-duo of Deante Burton and Andre Davis as targets. Did we mention Braxton would even have a Gronkowski to play with at Kansas State?

Nobody spreads a defense better than the Kansas State offense; a strong selling point for a dual-threat quarterback like Braxton Miller. Bill Snyder has always kept things simple on the offensive side of the ball but isn’t afraid to get creative. Its Kansas State’s willingness to adjust the playbook in order to adapt to player strengths that catapulted Josh Freeman into the first round of the NFL draft. If Braxton Miller wants to preview himself in royal purple, he should look no further than Freeman’s Kansas State highlight reel.

Despite speculation he doesn’t want to leave Columbus, we’re inclined to believe Miller has set his sights on playing in the NFL and will do whatever it takes to make that happen. In December, Tom D’Angelo of the Palm Beach Post reported that Miller “wants to play in the NFL and he is looking for a program that will help that process.”

If J.T. Barrett’s performance during the regular season didn’t make Braxton Miller an afterthought at Ohio State, then Cardale Jones in the College Football Playoff certainly did. Urban Meyer won’t admit it but if Miller sticks around, he’s only seeing the field with a switch to receiver. This is a move the two-time Big Ten offensive player of the year does not have to make, nor should he.

The only move Braxton Miller needs to make is a move to Manhattan, Kansas.
