Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson, former IMG Academy star, transfers to MI

Shea Patterson transferring to Michigan: Wolverines add former No. 1 QB recruit

The Wolverines also are expected to sign quarterback commits Joe Milton and Kevin Doyle for the 2018 recruiting class.

The transfer of Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson has become official. Then, O'Korn saw the job go to Brandon Peters, who was later injured, opening the door for O'Korn's return.

If Patterson is immediately eligible, he'll compete with Brandon Peters and Dylan McCaffrey for the MI starting job. At the time of his injury, Patterson led the SEC in passing yards.

Former IMG Academy teammate Cesar Ruiz, who is a true freshman at MI, was in charge of keeping the three entertained during their visit, according to MLive.com.

Pursuing Patterson still seems like an easy decision. Earlier this season, Finebaum called Harbaugh "overrated." Jim Harbaugh makes $11 million a year. 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. He was knocked out of the Wisconsin loss with a concussion, which forced him to miss the regular season finale against Ohio State.

It's been a frustrating season, and Harbaugh has invited close scrutiny after drawing so much attention to MI football his first couple years on campus.

Expecting Michigan to compete for Big Ten championships in 2018 and '19 is fair.

Patterson is entering his junior season next year and will need to apply for an individual waiver from the NCAA to be eligible for the 2018 season. In high school, he was the top-ranked quarterback prospect in the country.
