Braxton Miller gets Heisman endorsement from Urban Meyer

Patrick Smith

Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer supports his quarterback, Braxton Miller, winning college football's most prestigious individual trophy.

Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Braxton Miller is near the top of every Heisman Trophy projection list, and on Monday, he received the endorsement of head coach Urban Meyer.

According to the Cleveland plain Dealer:

"Do I believe he's a Heisman candidate? I do. I didn't say that before," Meyer said. "But I do believe Braxton is a Heisman candidate. He has to play much better. However, just from sheer production on a team that's 9-0, it puts him in that category, and that's without knowing all the other candidates."

Miller is considered to be among a host of favorites to make it to the ceremony in New York, along with Kansas St. Wildcats quarterback Collin Klein, West Virginia Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith, Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron and Notre Dame Fighting Irish linebacker Manti Te'o.

In leading the Buckeyes to a 9-0 start, Miller has thrown for 1,527 yards and 12 touchdowns and rushed for 1,093 yards and 12 touchdowns.
