Shea Patterson says he will return to MI in 2019

Patterson transferred to MI from Ole Miss following the 2017 season and was eligible to play right away due to an NCAA waiver. Because Ole Miss was facing a bowl ban for the 2018 season, Patterson was able to transfer to MI and be immediately eligible.

"I feel like I'd do anything for the guys", Patterson said. "I also want to welcome and congratulate the new signing class - come in ready to work because we are coming for everything next season".

In 12 games, Patterson threw for 65% with 2,364, 21 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Many thought he was going to go to the National Football League draft and I thought he was going to strongly consider it.

Patterson's legacy, like Jim Harbaugh's, will be determined by what he does against Ohio State. If you are going to be the head coach or the starting quarterback at MI, that's just the way it is. That's the one thing that ignited me. "The thoughts were maybe come out after one year, so I think there might have been some speculation there".

"I just felt we worked so hard and had such a good season leading up to that game".

"I love this place, and I love my teammates even more". That just brought a lot of emotions. "That's a big part of the reason I'm so comfortable".

Michigan, 10-2, plays Florida in the Peach Bowl on December 29. He was granted a waiver to play last spring after transferring from Ole Miss.

Patterson won't have the team's leading rusher against the Gators on December 29 in the Peach Bowl, and the defense will be without at least two of its top players.
