Ole Miss softens stance on transfer restrictions

Ole Miss softens stance on transfer restrictions

It could be a huge recruiting weekend for MI.

One of those is Shea Patterson.

ESPN/ABC college football analyst Kirk Herbstreit recently told Land of 10 that he views MI coach Jim Harbaugh's performance up to this point as impressive, and his future as even more promising.

Patterson, the No. 1 quarterback recruit in the country two years ago, grew up in Toledo before moving to the South. And Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh was seen in Oxford yesterday, reportedly attempting to lure Patterson and safety Deontay Anderson to the Wolverine campus. He completed 64 percent of his passes this season for 2,259 yards, 17 touchdowns, and nine interceptions before a season-ending knee injury in the seventh game.

Anderson was a second-team All-SEC selection as a freshman in 2016.

A source close to the program said that MI will be hosting three current Ole Miss players this weekend as they consider a possible transfer after the school was hit with sanctions by the NCAA. There are at least five known players looking to transfer from Ole Miss, including at least two who are likely headed to MI. Jefferson has 91 catches for 999 yards and four touchdowns in two seasons of play, while Anderson had 32 tackles and an interception last season but redshirted this past season.

Rising seniors can transfer without penalty. Yahoo's Pat Forde reported Tuesday that the same benefit could be extended to all Ole Miss players. Word is there also might be more Rebels visiting MI in hopes of potentially transferring there. Dudek now has the same title at MI. In addition, Cesar Ruiz, who was Patterson's center when the two were at IMG Academy in Florida, is now at MI, where he made three starts at right guard as a freshman this fall.
