    Chris Balas of The Wolverine reports that Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson will be ruled eligible to play by the NCAA in 2018.

    The report indicates that Patterson could be ruled eligible as soon as Friday. The former Ole Miss quarterback transferred to Michigan after the NCAA sanctions against the school, and he was appealing for a chance to play immediately because he was misled by former coach Hugh Freeze about the severity of the sanctions. It's huge news for the Wolverines, as Patterson is considered to be among the best quarterback prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft class, and flashes big-time ability in his time with Mississippi. It appears Jim Harbaugh has his answer at QB for 2018.

    It's official:
    The NCAA approved Michigan junior QB Shea Patterson's waiver request for immediate eligibility in 2018.

    Multiple reports broke over the wire on Thursday that Patterson would be granted eligibility for the upcoming campaign. It's official, now. The 6-foot-2, 193-pounder transferred from Ole Miss to Michigan in December. Under normal circumstances, he would have been forced to sit out the 2018 season as a non-graduate transfer, but he has successfully argued that former Rebels HC Hugh Freeze misled him (and others) as to the extent of NCAA sanctions coming down the pike for the program in Oxford. With Patterson ruled eligible, we view Michigan as a true contender for the Playoff so long as he's healthy -- the former five-star recruit is healing up from a season-ending PCL tear sustained in October. Prior to going down injured, he had thrown for 2,259 yards (63.8% completions) with a 17/9 TD/INT ratio across seven games. There's been grumbling about UM HC Jim Harbaugh's results over the past two seasons. Now that he has a quarterback, pressure's on.
    After all of this hoopla Patterson better be a stud QB.

    honestly I'm not getting my hopes up

    I'm glad we got him for competition purposes, but I don't even know if he'll be handed the job (haha)

    hopefully SOMEONE finally emerges as the star Michigan QB we've been waiting for, the odds are on Shea, but the last few years have been so bad at the position I'll be happy with competence

    also, I hope he doesn't wear 20, we already had our "non qb number" guy with Gardner and that went well

    Michigan football gives another offer to an 8th grader

    Already standing at 6-foot-3 and 227 pounds before his freshman year of high school, Martin started every game this past season for the Knights as a tight end and linebacker, leading the team in tackles with over 100.

    The Knights have seen their fair share of talent come through the program on coach Mike Willey’s watch, including Stanford signee Jay Symonds this past season. But asked to recall the last time he’s had someone this physically gifted this early, Willey struggled to find an equal.

    “He’s a tremendous kid that happens to be a tremendous athlete,” Willey told USA TODAY. “He’s worked exceptionally hard and put himself in a good position, that’s why I think Michigan says, yeah, this is the kind of guy they want.
    this is a weird trend

    WTOL-11's Jordan Strack reports that Michigan redshirt sophomore RB Kareem Walker will transfer.

    Walker (6'1/210) enrolled at Michigan with much fanfare as the top running back in the 2016 class, but it just hasn't worked out for him. He struggled with academics early in his career, which in turn led to him taking a freshman redshirt. When he was a given a chance in the field during the past campaign, he did little with it, rushing for 68 yards on 20 carries. Wolverines RB coach Jay Harbaugh said in early April that the team was "pretty happy with his performance," though he did add something of a caveat with "he's doing the best he can." As a transfer, there's enough talent here that Walker figures to receive attention from a number of Power 5 programs in the coming days and weeks.
    Another high running back recruit failed.

    WTOL-11's Jordan Strack reports that Michigan junior WR Kekoa Crawford will transfer.

    Crawford (6'2/187) came on to catch 17 passes for 243 yards and a touchdown last season. He's not without his appeal, but the Wolverines have a relatively deep receiving corp and realistically, he wasn't going to be an integral part in the offense during the coming season. Crawford will try for more robust opportunity elsewhere, though he'll have to sit out the 2018 season to satisfy NCAA regulations lest he opts for a transfer out of the FBS altogether.

    Crawford was always a frustrating to watch out there. Has talent, just didn't seem to know how to use it consistently.

    So is this Harbaugh's last season? The results are not looking too good. This season schedule is tougher than last. 0-4 to OSU would be a huge problem.

    doubt it's his last, his Stanford coaching career was pretty slow before he got the 9ers gig, they went

    4-8
    5-7
    8-5
    12-1

    with a pretty decent QB the last two years, with Michigan it's been

    10-3 (disaster nightmare loss to sparty)
    10-3 (3 losses by a combined 5 points including very questionable OSU game)
    8-5 with nobody behind center

    I think he's fine for now, there's been some rough breaks against Michigan since he's been here, but if that OSU game goes (I know I'm biased) the correct way Michigan could've been in the playoff. Last year was supposed to be Speights big breakout, instead he broke down and were left with he shall not be mentioned at QB and it got so ugly down the stretch until we finally couldn't take it anymore and put the 3rd string guy in.

    His resume to this point is too strong to consider him on the hot seat IMO, if the expectations weren't through the roof when he came here this wouldn't be a discussion

    That's it right there. They are already saying Brady Hoke did better and they didn't pay him 9 mil a year. We'll see soon enough if Harbaugh can turn it around.

    Michigan junior WR Eddie McDoom has left the team.

    McDoom (6'0/180) makes for the fourth receiver to say so long to the Wolverines this offseason, joining Drake Harris (transferred to Western Michigan), Maurice Ways (transferred to Cal) and Kekoa Crawford (no longer listed on roster). The former four-star recruit takes his leave having caught 24 passes for a total of 203 yards during his time in the program. No touchdowns. None of the above losses -- including that of McDoom himself -- are crippling on an individual basis, but the overall result is a notably thinned receiving corp. Tarik Black and Donovan Peoples-Jones make for a strong corp, but should UM run into injury concerns at wideout down the road, they've become increasingly ill-equipped to deal with it.

    You get a transfer, and you get a transfer!

    Guess he was low on the depth chart with Perry back and the one new kid showing well. Best of luck, hope he does well with that name.

    DPJ maybe?

    Harbaugh got too obvious how he was using Eddie ala how he used Peppers on offense imo. I am hoping we can really open up the playbook and not telegraph what is coming because a specialist is in the game. That said I will miss screaming DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM after he touches the ball (in a good way haha).
