On Monday, Shea Patterson made it official: He will be transferring to Michigan.

Patterson, who came to the Rebels as a 5-star quarterback prospect out of Shreveport, Louisiana, tweeted out the announcement shortly after noon.

Patterson, along with Deontay Anderson and Van Jefferson, went on an official visit to Ann Arbor over the weekend after Michigan Head Coach Jim Harbaugh came to Oxford to visit with the players last week.

Patterson’s 2017 season was cut short against the LSU Tigers when he tore his PCL. Prior to going down, he had passed for 2,259 yards and 17 touchdowns in six games.

  1. Shea, Thank you for your service–I wish that it had turned out differently here at Ole Miss.
    You were loved and appreciated here and you will be in Michigan.
    At least from what I can find out, you will not have to compete with anyone up there for a starting job, can’t blame you. I would not want to compete with the “Hawaiian Punch” that will start for us next year.
    I am sure that Coach Harbaugh is as lovable as Coach Luke.
    I am just grateful that I got to see you play in an Ole Miss Uniform—I dream of seeing you in a Michigan uniform against my Rebels before you go to the Pros.
    Remember, “Honor your Mother and FATHER” and one day you might be able to make your own decisions. I do wish you the best. (Seriously)
