Jim Harbaugh on QB Shea Patterson: 'He's really been intense and focused each day of practice'
Michigan QB Shea Patterson seems to be everywhere you look.
Preseason magazines, news outlets, national radio hosts, you name it. People are talking about Patterson and what him and Wolverines coach Jim Harbaugh can do in 2018 to opposing teams.
After all, Patterson was the No. 4 overall prospect and No. 1 QB in the Class of 2015 when he came out of high school and committed to Ole Miss according to 247Sports. Expectations are high, and rightfully so.
On Monday, during Harbaugh’s press conference, he talked a bit about his new signal caller and how he has looked to this point:

If Patterson is doing all that he can do to be focused and sharp, that’s all that you can ask for.
Well, that and being dominant on Saturdays. Patterson will have his shot to show the country what he can do right off the bat.
