COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio State has determined star quarterback Braxton Miller did not profit from the sale of items he had signed at a Big Ten preseason kickoff luncheon.
Athletic director Gene Smith said Wednesday the university talked to Miller after someone offered autographs and signed memorabilia for sale online without the junior's knowledge.
ESPN has reported that the NCAA is investigating whether Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M was paid for signing hundreds of autographs in January.
Smith said Ohio State, which is still on NCAA probation because of a memorabilia scandal two years ago, first heard of Miller's signed items being available on Sunday.
Smith says there is no "issue" with Miller and the autographs.
