Cleveland Plain Dealer: OSU Finds No Violations in Braxton Miller Autographs on Website of Manziel's Alleged Broker
According to Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Ohio State's Compliance Department reviewed autographs from Braxton Miller that are for sale on a website run by a broker linked to Johnny Manziel and found that no NCAA violations took place. Gene Smith told Cleveland.com that Ohio State received a call Sunday night that Miller was the college athlete-with the second-most memorabilia on the website. “We were told our guy was number two,” Smith said. “So we started checking on that. We went through all that stuff, and there's no connection.”
Smith said the compliance department met with Miller sometime on Monday or Tuesday, and it was determined that most of the Miller merchandise for sale was signed during an hour-long autograph session held as part of Big Ten media days.
