Miller announced Thursday night through the university he will return. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder had been contemplating jumping into the NFL draft a year early.

An acclaimed recruit out of Springfield, Ohio, Miller has started for almost three full seasons. After taking over during a 6-7 season in 2012, under new coach Urban Meyer he led the Buckeyes to a school-record 24 consecutive wins before losses in the Big Ten championship game to Michigan State and Orange Bowl to Clemson.

Even though he missed almost three full games with a sprained knee in 2013, he passed for 2,094 yards and 24 touchdowns with seven interceptions and ran for 1,068 yards and 12 scores.

Late in the season, he was asked if he felt he was ready to play in the NFL.

''Oh, yeah. Of course. Yeah. Definitely,'' he said. ''It's just another step in life.''

Asked what he would gain from returning for a senior season, Miller said, ''Learning from Coach Meyer. He's one of the best in the game. So just learn from him. Get better at my craft, I feel like. And graduate, too.''

He had said at the Orange Bowl that he intended to return, but the decision was delayed for several days while he met with his family, friends and coaches.
