A former SEC starting quarterback has a new home.


When Patterson first received his release from Ole Miss, SEC programs and teams on Ole Miss' schedule were initially precluded from having contact. Ole Miss reversed its stance, allowing LSU and other SEC programs the option to recruit Patterson. LSU apparently had interest in Patterson, but he ultimately chose Michigan.

Patterson chose Ole Miss over LSU and Alabama after a fantastic high school career, which included a two-year stop at Calvary Baptist during his sophomore and junior seasons, before wrapping his prep career up at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida.

A native of Shreveport, Patterson thew for 2,259 yards and 17 touchdowns last season.

Patterson will have two years of eligibility remaining at Michigan..
