A photo of MI coach Jim Harbaugh perusing a restaurant menu Tuesday would not normally be of much interest.

Patterson, a sophomore, has averaged 313.9 yards passing in 10 games over the last two seasons at Ole Miss.

A source close to the program said that MI will be hosting three current Ole Miss players this weekend as they consider a possible transfer after the school was hit with sanctions by the NCAA.

Anderson, the top-ranked safety in the 2016 recruiting class according to ESPN, played in every game his freshman season. Patterson has been granted permission to seek a transfer, which has limitations related to SEC teams and opponents on Ole Miss' schedule the next two years.

He was also a four-star recruit. Mars reportedly has said Anderson claims former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze and athletic director Ross Bjork were not truthful during his recruitment about the NCAA infractions. He also will visit Oklahoma and TCU, according to the website. Barring a change that would allow all Ole Miss transfers to play right away, which is possible, Anderson would have to sit out the 2018 season. He suffered a season-ending knee injury in October. Wilton Speight, who won the starting job the last two seasons but missed the majority of this season after suffering three broken vertebrae at Purdue on September 23, recently announced that he would transfer for his final season, the Detroit News reported.
