Now that basketball is over, in Buckeye country, the attention is on the upcoming football season. Good news for Braxton Miller, Ohio State says he will not be penalized for a promotion of AdvoCare products on his Instagram account. Get more details below via 10TV.

The University released a statement on Thursday that read “The NCAA has determined that Braxton Miller’s Instagram post on March 24, 2015, was deemed to be a promotion of a commercial product. The Ohio State University Dept. of Athletics reported the incident to the NCAA, and the NCAA has reinstated Braxton’s eligibility without any conditions. This was considered a minor violation and the matter is now closed.”

This comes after Miller found himself caught in the tangled web of NCAA compliance after posting a photo on Instagram with a trainer and a table full of AdvoCare products last month. With Miller in the photo is the owner of Athentik Fitness.

After the photo was published, multiple media outlets questioned the picture as a possible NCAA violation.

While Miller is allowed to work for the company, he is prohibited from using his notoriety as a NCAA player.
