Ever since the news broke regarding Johnny Manziel reportedly being investigated by the NCAA for selling his autographs for money, journalists and investigative reporters have been searching for links between the broker linked to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and other players. It just so happens that there were a number of items from quarterback Braxton Miller that are for sale on a website run by a broker linked to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel.
Ohio State has been quick to investigate and reported to Cleveland.com today that no violations took place.
“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 in Chicago in late July as part of Big Ten media days. The Buckeyes and Michigan had the longest lines there.
