Ohio State senior quarterback Braxton Miller is planning to play one final season in 2015 and, according to NFL.com, Miller will be returning to Columbus to compete for the starting quarterback spot with redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett.

Miller re-injured his right (throwing) shoulder just before the beginning of the 2014 season, despite having surgery over the offseason. That gave the offensive reins to Barrett, who has helped lead Ohio State to a 9-1 record and has even entered the Heisman Trophy conversation for his impressive offensive numbers. Barrett has thrown for 2,356 yards and 29 touchdowns on a 64 percent completion rate.

Though this report doesn't come as much of a surprise, considering both head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Tom Herman have said in recent weeks that Miller is expected to return, it does help quell some of the rumors that Miller could end up transferring to another school for the 2015 season. With the recent play of Barrett, coach Meyer has mentioned that there could potentially be a competition for starting quarterback between Miller and Barrett.

Regardless, it's likely Miller will see plenty of playing time in what will be his final season at Ohio State. As a starter, Miller has compiled a 28-8 record with the Buckeyes and has been one of the most electrifying playmakers in the country.
