Entering 2012 many probably believed that given the tutelage of Urban Meyer, Braxton Miller would stand a real chance to be a Davey O'Brien award finalist. Who knew that it'd be so soon?

The Davey O'Brien Foundation announced Monday evening that Ohio State's Braxton Miller joins a trio that includes Kansas State's Collin Klein and electric Texas A&M freshman Johnny Manziel as finalists for the Davey O'Brien Award, an award designed to recognize the best quarterback in the country. Troy Smith previously won the award in 2006.

While the Aggies' signal caller has pulled away from Braxton Miller in many statistical categories since we first visited the subject of the two head to head, both quarterbacks (along with Klein) are worthy of the honor as three of the most exciting players to watch at any position nationally. Should Miller win it, he'd be the youngest Ohio State quarterback to take the prestigious honor.

Ohio State fans can help Miller's chances by voting for the award once daily. Voting closes December 2nd at 1 pm EST and accounts for 5% of the total vote.
