Ohio State set to reinstate QB Jack Miller
No. 4 Ohio State is set to reinstate third-string quarterback Jack Miller, who was suspended after being charged with operating a vehicle under the influence.
Ohio State-focused website Lettermen Row said Miller pleaded guilty to a lesser misdemeanor charge of reckless operation and paid a $150 fine. Coach Ryan Day said the suspension, which went into effect Nov. 5, was expected to be lifted Thursday.
Miller didn’t travel with the Buckeyes to Nebraska on Nov. 6 and also missed last Saturday’s win against Purdue.
The Buckeyes (9-1) host No. 7 Michigan State on Saturday in a game that could knock them out of contention for a berth in the College Football Playoff with a loss. Having Miller back on the sideline would provide Day with an insurance policy should something happen to starter C.J. Stroud or backup Kyle McCord against the Spartans.
A four-star recruit in the Class of 2020, Miller has played in four games this season, completing 7 of 14 passes for 101 yards.
