As the 2014 season fades into the history books, the 2015 quarterback competition will begin heating up as both Braxton Miller and J.T. Barrett are moving into the next faze of recovery. Earlier this week, Miller confirmed he has begun throwing and warming up his shoulder and arm, but that wasn't the biggest news to come out about the former starting quarterback as of late.

Braxton Miller's QB tutor, George Whitfield, told the Toledo Blade's Dave Briggs that Miller didn't seriously consider a transfer and is only looking to play QB:

The weeks following the National Championship victory were filled with questions about the future of Ohio State's quarterback position. With three potential Heisman candidates competing for the same starting position, theories about transferring and position changes were thrust into the spotlight.

College players and alumni tried their best at recruiting Miller to transfer, and Urban Meyer had a strong stance on media members trying their hand at recruiting him too. College football fans also talked about Miller changing positions to get his chance at playing time his senior year.

Buckeye fans will likely have to wait until fall camp to see what kind of progress Miller has made with his shoulder recovery, but if Whitfield is right, he should be 100% ready to go sometime this summer, making an already intriguing QB battle that much more intense.
