Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson is set to begin exploring his transfer options.
On Tuesday, a Sports Illustrated report indicated the standout signal-caller is set to take an official visit to Ann Arbor to meet with Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines. Rebels safety Deontay Anderson is also set to make an official visit to Michigan after players were granted their release to transfer in the wake of the latest NCAA sanctions being handed down.
Patterson recorded 2,259 yards, 17 touchdowns and nine interceptions during his sophomore season before suffering a season-ending knee injury.
In the seven games he played, Patterson threw more touchdowns than Michigan quarterbacks did in the entire year (9).
If Patterson were to make the transfer to Michigan, he would be reunited with former Arizona recruiting coordinator Matt Dudek, who was with the Wildcats when Patterson initially committed to the school before leaving to take the same role with the Wolverines.
Earlier in the day on Tuesday, Harbaugh was in Oxford where he had lunch at IHOP with Anderson.
Ole Miss safety Deontay Anderson, who is trying to transfer, is having lunch with Jim Harbaugh at the moment. Per his Snapchat.

The Wolverines private jet was also spotted in town.

With the meetings on Tuesday and official visits set up, it certainly looks like the Wolverines are in the driver’s seat to land the two Ole Miss standouts.
