Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson announces he will transfer to MI

Minnesota head coach P.J. Fleck looks on as his team plays Illinois in the second half of an NCAA college football game Saturday Oct 21 2017 in Minneapolis. Minnesota won 24-17

In any event, the Rebel quarterback committing to play for the Wolverines was a terrific get for Jim Harbaugh.

Ole Miss Quarterback Shea Patterson has announced he will transfer to the University of MI.

"Thank you to the wonderful people, teammates and coaches at Ole Miss", Patterson tweeted. "It is a special place and I will always have great memories of my experience in Oxford". I am now excited to announce my commitment to continue to my athletic and academic career at The University of MI. It's time to go to work.

Patterson's circumstances are different than most, as he needs to leave to have a chance to play in the postseason in what could be his final season, should he be ruled eligible and should he decide to turn pro after the 2018 season.

Patterson could be eligible to play in 2018 for MI because of NCAA sanctions facing Ole Miss.




If he isn't eligible in 2018, he'd be a redshirt junior starting in 2019.

The NCAA announced sanctions against Ole Miss on December 1 that allow seniors to transfer immediately.

Patterson won Ole Miss' starting quarterback job out of camp this season, starting the team's first seven games before going down with a torn PCL in October. Watching Patterson lead the Wolverines to a big year would be a tough pill to swallow. McCaffrey, the younger brother of Carolina Panthers rookie running back Christian McCaffrey, has yet to appear in a game. He committed to Ole Miss over a group of schools that included LSU and USC.

In 2017, he was leading the SEC in passing yards (2,259) and ranked second in touchdown passes (17) at the time of his injury. Then, O'Korn saw the job go to Brandon Peters, who was later injured, opening the door for O'Korn's return.
