Ohio State suspended redshirt freshman quarterback Jack Miller III following a reported arrest Friday morning.
The Ohio State Highway Patrol arrested Miller and charged him with operating a vehicle while impaired, according to a statement from the Department of Athletics. Miller has since been released from custody and will be expected to appear in court.
Miller, a former four-star recruit from the class of 2020, joined Ohio State a season ago, playing in two games with one touchdown. He’s played in four games in 2021, splitting duties as a backup with freshman Kyle McCord.
