Braxton Miller will take another season to show NFL evaluators what he can do.

The Ohio State junior quarterback is returning for his senior year, the school’s athletic department said on Twitter on Thursday night.

Miller, according to the school, said that he wanted to graduate and to “improve as a quarterback in all aspects of my game.”

Miller, who’s listed at 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds by Ohio State, has won the Big Ten’s offensive player of the year honors in each of last two seasons. In 2013, he completed 162-of-255 passes for 2,094 yards with 24 TDs and seven interceptions. He also rushed for 1,058 yards and 12 TDs on 171 carries.
