Paul Finebaum: Jim Harbaugh 'poached' Shea Patterson
Shea Patterson’s arrival in Ann Arbor could mean big things for Michigan if he is able to play right away.
Patterson announced his decision to transfer to Michigan from Ole Miss on Monday. He is a former five-star QB and highly touted recruit from the class of 2016 who has already thrown for 3,000 yards in his college career.
Patterson will have to wait and see if the NCAA will grant him immediate eligibility after a number of sanctions were handed down to Ole Miss, and Paul Finebaum believes the ability to play Patterson in 2018 would make Michigan title contenders. He also commented that Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh ‘poached’ Patterson.
Here is a look at his full tweet:
Jim Harbaugh just poached one of the SEC's best QBs in Shea Patterson. If the NCAA allows him to play in 2018 the Wolverines become a title contender. #CFB

Ole Miss is dealing with a number of transfers following NCAA sanctions, but it certainly didn’t take long for Harbaugh and the Wolverines to swoop in on Patterson.
While the emergence of Jordan Ta’amu this season leaves the Rebels well prepared for 2018, Patterson’s departure is still a tough one for fans. Watching Patterson lead the Wolverines to a big year would be a tough pill to swallow.
