Im rooting for Braxton. He sounds like a good guy and hopefully his bold predictions turn out better than Steve Bairds when he claimed a future national title.

It is always good to set long term goals. Many kids want to go pro, but don't put in the extra time to do the little things to put yourself above everyone else. I hope Braxton can stay focussed on his academics and accomplish these goals during his time at OSU. It will go by fast.

Another recruit that is talking pie in the sky before he ever takes a snap. Remember the hype around Justin Zwick? I hope this kid doesn't get too big of a head or they wont be able to get a helmet that fits.

Great ... Plus the Buckeyes received a commitment from 4 -star WR Evan Spencer from Illinois Fri-Night (# 13 recruit for 2011 ). Evan is the son of Buckeye Great Tim Spencer -who is coaching with the Chicago Bears Organization . Evan is 6'1" 188 lbs + runs a 4.45 forty and stated , " He was excited that Braxton Miller verballed to the Buckeyes " . Looking forward to seeing Braxton to Evan for many big plays for the Scarlet & Gray ... Go Bucks !

Braxton Miller #1 in family arrests? Is that what we're talking about?? Come on. The Cincinnati Bearcats, yes the BEARCATS, about 90 minutes south of Columbus have the best QB recruit in the state in Patrick Coyne from Hamilton Badin. Look it up on rivals. Coyne has a better rating and has had better camps than Miller. Also, has less of an arrest record and is a better student. Bearcats 1, Suckeyes 0. Brian Kelly said last year and we continue to say this in Cincinnati, "bring the Buckeyes to play the Bearcats, I'll play anywhere including a parking lot in Xenia." GO BEARCATS!!!!!

Hmmmm...let me see...if memory serves me, the number of number 1 draft picks at QB from Ohio State is.....can we say zero...and the number of Ohio State QBs even playing in the NFL is.......can the number be the same...I do believe it is!! Great choice young man...make sure you go to all of your classes and get some sort of degree..you will need it!!

Easy SOM before you hurt someone's feelings. I attended both schools before graduating from OSU. I can honestly say they are both fine institutions, academically as well as athletically. You seem to be upset that Scout lists Miller as #1 (nationally), and young Mr. Coyne has been slighted. Who cares anyway? Let it go. This bitter adversarial crap could ruin what has become a decent relationship between two Ohio schools. I seem to recall the Bearcats entertaining the Bucks one Saturday afternoon not too long ago...and looking pretty good in doing so too. I don't know if there are any plans for another game, but if so, lets hold it in the shoe.(no disrespect intended for the fine parking lots of Xenia.)

September 8, 2012 can't get here soon enough. Your kittiecats will visit the 'Shoe and your #1 QB can take on ours. Since you can't remember past defeats you can look forward to that future beat down.

YAWN... did you say something about football? Oh, of course not, you're talking about bearYAWNcats semi college football. Outside of Cincy - nobody gives a damn about bearYAWNcat football. You had a good year, your coach bailed on you for an actual football program so now go away and flap your gums on a high school board where you'll be a big boy. bearYAWNcat football... bwwwaaa haaaa haaaaaaa thanks for the laughs

It looks like Braxton is rated higher than your boy Coyne. This is from Rivals.com .
Man I hope all Cincy fans aren't like you, illiterate.

another cinsatucky billi bob heard from. wow if they ever get a program they'll never shut up. but you gotta give it to them, it must be hard to always have be little brother looking up at a team you haven't beaten in a 100 yrs,and knowing you'll probably never beat them in the future.I guess that must really suck. about that parking lot in xenia, isn't that where cincy plays all it's games?

He seems very confident. I think D1 football will be a little tougher then the teams he is playing now. Nevertheless come to Ohio State!
