(TSX / STATS) -- University of Mississippi quarterback Shea Patterson announced on Twitter Monday that he will transfer to Michigan, where he might be eligible in 2018 due to NCAA sanctions against the Rebels' program.
Patterson, a former five-star recruit, completed 166 of 260 passes for 2,259 yards, with 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions in seven games as a sophomore this season. His campaign was cut short by a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.
"Thank you to the wonderful people, teammates and coaches at Ole Miss," Patterson wrote. "It is a special place and I will always have great memories of experiences in Oxford. I am now excited to announce my commitment to continue my athletic and academic career at the University of Michigan.
