As Shea Patterson continues his fight for immediate eligibility after transferring from the Ole Miss football program to the Michigan Wolverines, he has released a new letter that takes aim at former Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze and how he misled players.
Patterson wrote a letter about Freeze for the NCAA to see and the former five-star recruit discussed Freeze’s lies.
“It doesn’t seem fair to me that the only thing standing in the way of Coach Freeze making $5 million a year at another school was the discovery that he wasn’t the trustworthy, straight-laced role model that he claimed to be,” Patterson wrote, via CBS Sports.
Patterson is hoping to be granted immediate eligibility so he can suit up for the Wolverines in 2018.
Worst case scenario for Patterson is that he is forced to sit out the 2018 season before being eligible to return in 2019.
Of course, in a perfect world, Patterson would be able to put on the maize and blue immediately with his argument that he was lied to by former Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze about the incoming NCAA sanctions.
Michigan previously seemed optimistic that Patterson would be eligible to suit up, but now they will have to continue waiting with Ole Miss’ latest objection and we will have to see if the NCAA ultimately determines the quarterback can suit up for the Wolverines’ 2018 opener against Notre Dame on Sept. 1.
