Ole Miss Rebels quarterback Shea Patterson has been granted permission to speak with other schools. Patterson is a former five-star recruit.

Patterson, who tore his ACL during the regular season, requested to leave after the NCAA leveled punishment against the school. The NCAA gave the school’s football program a 2018 Bowl ban — as it already self-imposed a 2017 Bowl ban and a loss of scholarships.

There are already two college football teams, who would be interested in Patterson. There may be others, but we think it’s likely going to come down to these two teams.

These two teams are the Michigan Wolverines and the UCLA Bruins.

With the Wolverines, he would likely come in as a starter. Wilton Speight, who will be a fifth-year senior next season, announced that he will transfer for his final campaign.

John O’Korn, who transferred to Michigan after previously playing with the Houston Cougars, will be graduating. That would leave inexperienced freshman Dylan McCaffrey, the brother of Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey, junior Alex Malzone, sophomore Brandon Peters and sophomore Michael Sessa left on its present quarterback depth chart.

The Bruins will also need a quarterback as Josh Rosen is expected to be a top quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft. Rosen is expected to forgo his senior season and enter the NFL after the Bruins Bowl game – should they be selected.

UCLA, who will be lead by Chip Kelly next season, will have redshirt junior Craig Myers, redshirt freshman Devon Modster, redshirt freshman Matt Lynch, freshman Nick Juels, freshman Austin Burton and freshman Jackson Gibbs on its current quarterback depth chart roster.
