Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson says he's transferring to MI

Showing signs of the college version of Johnny Manziel during his brief IMG Academy stay, Patterson, who is from Shreveport, La., was a hot commodity as the No. 1-rated pro-style quarterback in the country.

Michigan Coach Jim Harbaugh received an early Christmas gift on Monday, when former Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson, the No. 1 quarterback in the class of 2016, announced that he's transferring to Ann Arbor.

Patterson was touted as a five-star quarterback prospect prior to his career at Ole Miss. He missed the final five games of the Rebels' 2017 season after tearing his right PCL against LSU.

It has still yet to be determined if Patterson and other MS transfers will have to sit out a year or be granted a waiver to play next season. "If the NCAA allows him to play in 2018 the Wolverines become a title contender".

He joins a MI quarterback room that includes Harbaugh recruits Brandon Peters and Dylan McCaffrey. He'd go on to throw for 880 yards with six touchdowns and three interceptions that year. Per NCAA rules for transfers, Patterson must sit out next season. Peters replaced a struggling John O'Korn late in the season and, while he sat out the Wolverines' regular season finale against Ohio State with a concussion, he is expected to start in the Outback Bowl against SC on New Year's Day. Head coach Hugh Freeze made a decision to pull Patterson's redshirt and start him for the final three games of the season.

Patterson threw for 2,259 yards and 17 touchdowns last season. He took an official visit there along with Ole Miss teammates safety Deontay Anderson and wide receiver Van Jefferson over the weekend. Finebaum also hasn't hidden his thoughts about Jim Harbaugh.

Peters is the only returning quarterback who has seen notable playing time.
