Michigan QB Shea Patterson drafted in 39th round of the 2018 MLB Draft
New Michigan QB Shea Patterson was recently declared eligible to play right away for the Wolverines after transferring from Ole Miss.
Now, though, he has another interesting decision to make, as the Texas Rangers selected him in the 39th round of the 2018 MLB Draft on Wednesday night.
As you can see below, Patterson, who isn’t even on Michigan’s baseball roster, was chosen with the No. 1,169 pick:

Obviously, this decision likely won’t have much of an impact on Patterson’s future at Michigan, as he seems fully committed to football.
In fact, if he plays well this year, there’s a chance he could work his way into the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, which would pay him a lot more than being a 39th-round pick in the MLB Draft would.
