With Shea Patterson transferring to Michigan, coach Jim Harbaugh has a star quarterback in his program. However, it’s still unclear whether Patterson will be able to play this fall or if he’ll have to sit out a year.

This offseason, former Michigan QB Wilton Speight announced he was going to explore graduate transfer options, anticipating not having a role on the 2018 Wolverines.

But, according to Harbaugh, Speight hasn’t ruled out returning to Ann Arbor, especially if Patterson doesn’t receive immediate eligibility (via CBSSports.com):

“I don’t rule it out completely,” Harbaugh said. “Wilton is going to be a graduate transfer…Wilton graduates in May, and he’s weighing some of his options,” Harbaugh said. “He’s first taking a look and seeing what else is out there to see who is need of a starting quarterback, but he hasn’t closed the door on coming back.”

Rising junior Brandon Peters will still be on the team this fall, so he’s the current favorite to be the starter if Patterson doesn’t receive clearance to play right away.

But, if Speight is back in the mix, things could get pretty interesting at Michigan.
