Former five-star Ole Miss QB Shea Patterson is transferring to MI

Ole Miss safety Deontay Anderson, who is also considering a transfer to MI, and several other Ole Miss players have retained legal counsel and have petitioned to Ole Miss, the Southeastern Conference and the NCAA for instant transfer eligibility.

Patterson announced his decision to transfer to MI from Ole Miss on Monday.

Patterson, a Toledo native, was the No. 1-ranked pro-style quarterback in the class of 2016, the same class as Brandon Peters.

Patterson is one of three Ole Miss players who visited MI on Saturday. Peters showed positive signs but wasn't asked to do much before being injured in the November 18 loss to Wisconsin.

O'Korn is a senior, and Speight announced that he'll transfer for his final season.

He joins a MI quarterback room that includes Harbaugh recruits Brandon Peters and Dylan McCaffrey.

Pursuing Patterson still seems like an easy decision.

Harbaugh is 28-10 in three seasons at MI. Harbaugh has a reputation as a quarterback guru, and suddenly he could have three blue-chip options, including one with significant SEC starting experience, to fix the situation at MI in Year 4. Watching Patterson lead the Wolverines to a big year would be a tough pill to swallow. But 2017 was a transition year from the veteran roster made up players Brady Hoke recruited to the top classes that Harbaugh has recruited. Not to mention he's joining a veteran team for 2018! Inconsistent play at quarterback has been what has held the Wolverine offense back the last couple of years. He was born and spent most of his younger years in Toledo, Ohio, before moving to Shreveport, La., for his first three years of high school.

Patterson just finished his sophomore season with the Rebels, who missed the postseason with a 6-6 record because of a self-imposed bowl ban and were also banned from postseason play next season.
