Obviously, both Patterson and MI want him to be in the quarterback competition for next season.

The former Ole Miss quarterback made the announcement Monday, via Twitter, he intends to transfer Ann Arbor.

Patterson was the No. 1 pro-style quarterback, and the No. 4 overall player in the 2016 recruiting class.

Patterson could be eligible to play in 2018 for MI because of NCAA sanctions facing Ole Miss.

MI is expected to have a competition between Patterson, Peters, and freshman Dylan McCaffrey for the starting quarterback job next season.

Patterson just finished his sophomore season with the Rebels, who missed the postseason with a 6-6 record because of a self-imposed bowl ban and were also banned from postseason play next season.

The team wont move from North Carolina, commissioner Gary Bettman said. The Eastern Conference has one more team than the Western Conference.

But before we get there, who is Patterson?

"Thank you to the wonderful people, teammates and coaches at Ole Miss", Patterson wrote. He completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,259 yards, 17 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. For his Ole Miss career, he averaged 313.9 yards passing in 10 games.

There was a lot of hype surrounding Patterson when he came to Ole Miss. He started toward the end of his freshman season and was the starter this season for the Rebels before he was lost with a season-ending knee injury that kept him out of the last five games. And the school obliged, allowing Patterson, coming off his sophomore season, the opportunity to engage in talks with MI.

"Brandon welcomes competition", Peters said.
